perfect lunch is at Le Cirque 2000, Sirio’s Eighth Wonder of the World
on Madison Ave. The best lunch partner would, of course, be Juliette
Binoche, or, say, Helen Hunt. Both ladies have physical defects, but
it is just those imperfections that make them so attractive. If they,
alas, are unavailable, then I’d choose Henry Kissinger as a partner.
Great food, good wine and intelligent conversation a perfect lunch make.
