Gourmet, 1941-2009

2009_11_aureole.jpgIn a turn of events as bittersweet as the chocolate Gourmet once promoted, a review in the now defunct magazine directly impacted the venue choice for Conde Nast's swanky Christmas party. CEO Si Newhouse is throwing the fete at New York's Aureole this year, a spot Gourmet raved about back in July, noting that it was a place where "people crowd in to air-kiss and clink glasses after work as they snack on pastrami pork belly sliders and fluke sashimi." Those people just won't include Ruth Reichl and her staff this year. [Gawker]
