When we spoke to Gilt waiter Chris Wilgos
the other day, he had colorful things to say about his old-timer patrons, but the place played to the teens in last night’s premiere episode of Gossip Girl
. In one clip, a prep student whose parents supposedly own the place hilariously bribes a cook to make his date her favorite dish: a grilled cheese sandwich with truffle oil. Watch as our hero Serena van der Woodsen downs a martini faster than you can say “extra dirty.” Really, Gilt? Really?
Serving minors? Either way, between this, the dinner scene at Geisha
, and (believe it) the sex scene at the Campbell Apartment
, we’re confident this show will spark the most exclamations of “Hey! I’ve eaten there!” since Sex and the City
. Below, the kids take over Gilt.
