Departures To Give Michael’s Script Treatment

WWD has the scoop:

Michael’s Restaurant — the near-compulsory media lunchroom — is about to get screenplay treatment in the pages of Departures. The magazine’s regular Screenplay feature periodically takes aim in dramatic form at spots around the world and is written by two anonymous writers. “Every so often, you come across a place that whether because it’s new, newsworthy or just annoying seems perfect for a Departures screenplay,” said editor Richard David Story. “And because Michael’s does traffic in a Hollywood-by-way-of-East 55th Street clientele, it seems particularly perfect.” Expect cameos by the usual suspects: Liz Smith and Peggy Siegal, David Zinczenko, Brian Glazer, Hillary Clinton, David Patrick Columbia and Atoosa Rubenstein. Not even the much-cited Cobb Salad will be immune.

Ahem. Forgetting something?
