David Patrick Columbia’s View From Table 8


Our favorite social chronicler David Patrick Columbia of NewYorkSocialDiary and Quest magazine has one of the best views at Michael’s. It was all an accident. Lunching at Table 8 with David Patrick Columbia — and we have done so a half a dozen times — affords one an exquisite view of the media machers in repose. On any given day anyone from Dominic Dunne to Jesse Kornbluth may stop by and shoot the breeze. From New York Social Diary:

”Michael’s was buzzing. In the bay, Barbara Walters was having a small birthday lunch for Princess Firyal .. Quite by accident it’s the most ideal table for a reporter to cover a business like Michael’s. I often see almost everyone who comes and goes.”
