If the New York Diet doesnt give you enough celebrity dining talk, you might want to check out Penfolds's Website, where every month, a winemaker from the Australian company and GQs Style Guy Glenn OBrien pour the good stuff for a celebrity guest. This month, Chris Noth asks what makes a wine big (get it? Mr. Big?) and, though the wine talk is illuminating (did you know Saddams favorite wine was Mateus?), our snippet of choice comes shortly before Noth and OBrien toast the end of a certain TV show with a 2004 Chardonnay. Manhattan looks like a bad imitation of Sex and the City, Noth ponders. Too many shoe stores, trendy restaurants, neighborhoods that have been raided by corporate-entity restaurants, and coffee shops. The meatpacking district I cant even go there. Everyones drinking cosmos and eating sushi. So there you go: Dont drink cosmos, silly Philistines drink Chardonnay!
