The Boy In The Bubble Visits New York Hot Spots

Warning: This is decidedly not Politically Correct, but it is too funny not to post, even though it's a bit off in left field for Vinography. McSweeney's, the delightful literary and everything-tangential-to-literature magazine founded and run by Dave Eggers has a series of New York restaurant reviews from The Boy In The Bubble.

Says the Boy In The Bubble about Asia De Cuba:

"Deciding that I mustn't be the last member of New York's illustrious glitterati to show off the exploits of a recent Milan shopping spree at Asia de Cuba, the Philippe Starck-designed Cuban-Asian fusion hot spot, I ventured into the certifiably buzzing mise en scène last week with high expectations and a Prada suit with a custom-sized neck hole and an extra interior pocket for my colostomy bag."

He also visits Masa and Soho House. Check out the full story.

I wonder when he's going to Per Se?

Okay, I'll be the first to admit it: It is so wrong that I love this.

Thanks Alder.
