Is glamour coming back to New York?

Written by editor

It may have been the hottest night New Yorkers experienced all summer….

It may have been the hottest night New Yorkers experienced all summer….

..but it was sizzling at the Poliform showroom (to die for closest designs) where Manhattan: Modern Luxury Magazine ( was presenting its 2009 Restaurant issue.

There was no need to look for pretty stylish women at NY bars and clubs, they were all sipping Naren Young signature Leblon cachaca cocktails and nibbling goodies prepared by NY’s top chefs who were kept busy working their way through lobster, plump and succulent shrimp, Greek sashimi and corn flan. Celebrity chefs included Jean George Vongerichten (of the superb shrimp), Amanda Frietag, and Michael Psilakis.

I assume the Cayman Islands joined this promotion launch for they are looking to populate the island with sexy and sophisticated New Yorkers (and their BFFs). Cayman Island winners get to their destination via Cayman Airways and indulge their food fantasies at the Ritz Carlton.

Richard Martin is the editor of the new magazine. He brought glitz and glamour back to NY for one night. If he is able to sustain this dynamic – then he deserves a plaque on Bloomingdale’s façade.

Now – if he could only get the NY guys to dress up – he will definitely get my vote for “Man of the Year.”
