The hottest restaurant of fall 2018 is actually Gwyneth Paltrow’s wedding. At the end of September, just a few weeks after the actress/entrepreneur’s company settled a costly jade vagina egg lawsuit, Paltrow married her longtime beau Brad Falchuk in the backyard of her house in Amagansett, New York. And now, one month after the big day, G-Money is revealing all the juicy details about her Hamptons wedding extravaganza in the form of an elaborate Goop slideshow.
The rehearsal dinner was overseen by extra-sensual Argentine meat maestro Francis Mallmann, who cooked pineapples over live wood fire for 12 hours. The passionate lover of wine and meat and flame flew all the way from Santiago, Chile for the occasion, fulfilling Gwyneth’s dream rehearsal dinner request. His special “fire menu” also included salt-crusted salmon, rib-eye steaks, pit-cooked vegetables, and “hung cabbage.” It looks like the beret-bedecked chef also prepared a giant cheddar cheese flatbread for Brad and Gwyneth the night before their nuptials:
On the big day, New York City hot shot Mario Carbone put together an opulent feast of continental fare that wouldn’t have been out of place at his Manhattan splurge restaurant, The Grill. The menu included Dungeness crab Louis, scampi tortellini, honey mustard duckling, prime rib, and an assortment of fall vegetables. Since Brad and Gwyneth had their first date at one of Carbone’s restaurants, it was “a very special, full-circle moment” to have him cook at their wedding. Sadly, Mr. Carbone left his tall, floppy chef’s hat at home, but it probably would have clashed with the more rustic Neo Brooklyn vibes of the rest of the service attire anyway.
For dessert, guests feasted on miniature carrot cakes and chocolate tortes from Brooklyn pastry shop Nine Cakes. And after dinner, Paltrow donned a Stella McCartney cape/jumpsuit combo and hit the dance floor, where she and her closest friends boogied down to a set by superstar laptop DJ Girl Talk.
And now, any rich person who wants replicate this party can do so with the help of the Goop website, which contains notes on where Paltrow and her pals sourced everything, from the dinner tent (the Skyline Tent Company) to the martini glasses (Restoration Hardware).
