Pierre Hotel's hot spot "Le Caprice" has arrived!
Finally, The Pierre Hotel’s long awaited opening of it’s new restaurant/bar, Le Caprice, has arrived! On Wednesday a couple girlfriends and I had the privilege of attending a private pre-opening dinner which attracted New York’s elite such as Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Naomi Campbell, Martha Stewart, Gayle King, Anne Dexter-Jones, Benny Medina, Alan Cumming, Cynthia Rowley, Princess Firyal, Victoria Alexander, Leo Wyndham, Jennifer Creel, Keith McNally, Alexandra Champlalimaud, Stephen Connery, Pat Schoenfeld, Amanda Brooks, Jane Keltner, Julia Erdman, and of course, photographer extraordinaire, Patrick McMullan. Guests enjoyed French and Italian cuisine (delicious risotto and halibut), while listening to live music from the piano. The renovation of the space was well received by socialites and press alike, as the ancient/stuffy décor from before was completely transformed into a modern chic aesthetic, with photographs of iconic sixties model Jean Shrimpton, by legendary British photographer David Bailey, on the walls. With the original Le Caprice in London being ever so popular and swanky, this location is bound to do the same. The prayers of Upper East Siders have been answered: a posh place to eat, drink, socialize with fabulous people and listen to live music will be officially opening on October 26th. Xoxo, NYC Girl
