From the boldface names-studded article "The Forbes 2010 All-Star Eateries" in the December 20, 2010 issue of Forbes, a magazine I haven't picked up in many, many years, and which has an interesting profile of Mr. Wikileaks, among other good pieces:

With its exquisite, hip-vibe decor [sic] and its opulent and baroque architecture, Gilt is a gilty pleasure, a memorable fine-dining experience.

Somehow, somebody neglected to mention that Gilt is located within what's left of the old (Renaissance Revival-style) Villard Houses on Madison Avenue--part of the Palace Hotel. The private dining room seems nice enough, although: were the chairs (at least in photographs) delivered to the wrong dining room?

What is there to say about gilty except What was wrong with the delete key?
