Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, whose ownership turned the quiet Waverly Inn into one of the city's most sought-after reservations, continues to dabble in the restaurant business with this second venture. Carter's rep told the Times that the space will be “a small restaurant, low-key,” which is also what they said about the Waverly Inn, and no doubt translates to “major power scene that is effectively Graydon's midtown clubhouse.” It makes a lot of sense that Carter would covet the space, which is double-distilled old New York, right down to the famous monkey murals.Bar Hours
