Holiday Forgiveness for Jean-Georges

Vanity Fair hosts Perry St. holiday party.


Nobody seems to have told Vanity Fair’s publishing side that the magazine has a feud with Jean-Georges Vongerichten. After the magazine’s editor, Graydon Carter, felt he had been mistreated at the chef’s trendy Chinese eatery, 66, VF sent acid-penned British critic A. A. Gill to review it. Whereupon Gill found that, among other things, the dumplings tasted like “fishy liver-filled condoms.” But now, strangely, VF’s publishing side is holding its holiday party at Vongerichten’s latest restaurant, Perry Street. A spokesperson for the magazine was unsure if Carter would attend. Maybe they should trot out VF’s prickly star photographer, Annie Leibovitz, instead. She recently sublet developer Scott Resnick’s 3,700-square-foot fifth-floor apartment in the Richard Meier building next door to Perry Street, because renovations are still not complete on the trio of townhouses she bought on West 11th Street.
