    Tenjune and Stereo Owners Too Busy to Sweat Rumors of Houston’s SlapfestA tipster tells Down by the Hipster that Michael Satsky, owner of the recently raided Stereo, approached Tenjune partner Mark Birnbaum at Houston’s and “walked directly up to him and hit him ‘openhanded’ out of his chair. He then proceeded to put him in a headlock.” The catalyst of that brawl, the source says, is that Tenjune stole DJ Suss One away from Stereo. We asked both parties for comments, and they were quick to offer statements.

    Nightlife Gurus Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum Like Working UndergroundNightlife moguls Mark Birnbaum and Eugene Remm must like being close to the ground. Their restaurant STK is at street level, and their megapopular club Tenjune is just below it. The pair’s new offices follow the pattern. Birnbaum and Remm recently bought a large space at the 47-unit Chelsea Modern on West 18th Street for $2.225 million. But instead of going for the penthouse like the boldface names that frequent their establishments usually do, they opted for the ground-floor duplex, which extends below street level. “From the perspective of location, I want to be in the neighborhood. Equinox is opening across street, the High Line is almost done…” Birnbaum told us. “From a resale position, it’s great. It’s a good long-term investment.” It won’t be dreary, either: The 2,277-square-foot space will have a glass sidewalk out front that will let light (and the sound of gentle footsteps) stream through to his basement. As Birnbaum assured us: “You don’t feel like you’re sitting in the dungeon.” —S.

  22. Ask a Waiter
    Lifestylist Michael Lerner Will Help You With That Parisian Wedding Proposal We normally reserve our Ask a Waiter column for, well, waiters (and bartenders, maître d’s, sommeliers, and the like), but if you’ve got $7,500 a year to blow on a service like Four Hundred — started in March by Tony Abrams along with Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum of Tenjune— you can also call upon still another industry professional: the lifestylist. Assuming you have his unlisted office number, you can contact Michael Lerner and ask him to make your every wish and whim come true, whether it be scoring you a table at Per Se or flying Kobe beef to your derby party in Kentucky. We asked Lerner how he works his magic.
