On the Town with Peter Bacanovic

Marthagate broker jetés back into high society.


Peter Bacanovic, just one week out of home confinement, hit the New York City Ballet benefit gala last Tuesday night. Martha Stewart’s former broker looks youthful for 43, if a little weary. “This is my first time out,” he said. “I’ve been under water for three and a half years. I’m so glad to be here. Isn’t this great?” Bacanovic came with socialite Fe Fendi, his good friend and a fellow balletomane. Fendi said Bacanovic would have preferred a different company—“He’s an ABT man.” But the City Ballet opening was perfectly timed. “I said, ‘Let’s celebrate. Let’s go get drunk,’ ” said Fendi. “We’ll try.” Bacanovic said he receives Stewart updates through mutual friends: “I don’t know if you’re aware of the law, but we’re not allowed to communicate.” Couldn’t he watch her TV shows? “I don’t watch TV. I never have,” he said. The next day, he left for the Caribbean. Friends say he’s considering a move to the West Coast to work in film.
