Graydon Carter Buys Monkey Business

imageGraydon Carter — editor of Vanity Fair and owner/savior/matchbook-maker at the Waverly Inn — has come to the rescue of yet another beleaguered New York restaurant. Word has leaked that Carter, along with a pair of partners, has purchased the Monkey Bar in the Hotel Elysée.

Troubled venue owners should look to Carter as a magnet personality fit to rejuvenate any property. Shall he creep further up the Upper East Side? Perhaps the bar at the renovated Mark Hotel? Or maybe kick the dowagers out of Bemelmans? Perhaps most importantly, will he continue his crusade as the Rosa Parks of indoor smoking?
