A Table In Heaven
I watched a great documentary last night on HBO- Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven. It was about Sirio Maccioni, the founder of Le Cirque, and his family. I walk by Le Cirque every day and it was interesting to get an idea of what goes on in there. The best part was watching the dynamic between Mr. Maccioni and his three sons Mario, Marco, and Mauro. They are these really passionate people with conflicting ideas on running the restaurant, yelling at each other in Italian most of the time. At the end, Mr. Maccioni goes to church on his bike, then kind of rides off into the sunset. He's wearing these red pants, a white button down shirt, and this little Gucci tote over his shoulder. He actually looks kind of chic. I sort of want some red pants now.
