FULL HOUSE: The Bon Appétit Supper Club and Cafe, which returned this week to a new location on 57th Street, has built quite a following through word of mouth. On Monday, those on lunch break stood in long lines wrapped around the building and the cafe served 730 people, while on Tuesday, 1,100 people stopped by for lunch and saw cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs Emeril Lagasse and Daniel Boulud.
By night, the supper club is hosting exclusive dinners for clients and celebrities prepared by chefs including Boulud, Nate Appleman and Tom Douglas, with guests such as Clive Owen, Lynn Redgrave, John Stamos and Gina Gershon. Barbara Fairchild, editor in chief, is in town for the week and talked about the similarities between the worlds of fashion and food. “Chefs have signature dishes the way designers showcase signature looks,” she said. “Both need to be cutting edge, colorful and rich.”
