Waverly Inn Is Becoming a Barrel of Laughs

The Waverly Inn is really yuking it up — a couple of days ago its blog offered a blind item about a “mitteleuropean fashion demigod” (Karl Lagerfeld?) who has large portions of sautéed carrots delivered for lunch. And now innkeeper Graydon Carter, in his video introduction to the latest issue of Vanity Fair, tries to convince Bono to settle for a 7 p.m. reservation (“8:00 it is—no promise on the banquette, though”).

However, we're somehow more amused by footage posted to YouTube yesterday of Bianca Jagger being greeted by Carter outside of the restaurant and then accidentally walking up the stairs to the townhouse above it — an entrance not quite as grand as the time she rode into Studio 54 on a white horse.
