Debonair restaurateur, boulevardier, and all-around bon vivant John McDonald bravely answered the "21 Questions" posed by our sibling Daily Intel today. The owner of Lure, Chinatown Brasserie, Brasserie 44, Lever House, and Merc Bar drinks “Margarita on the rocks with salt. Or super ice-cold beer, no glass.” This is the kind of guy we used to imagine wrote the Playboy Advisor in our boyhood. You may think you don’t want to know whether he likes the old Times Square or the new better, but you really do.
