Eavesdrop was thrilled by a friend’s “plus one” at the June 11 gala celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Four Seasons restaurant in the Seagram Building. We all know Mies and Philip’s icon, so we’ll skip the background and move on to name-dropping.

The R Is For “Rey”

The board of directors of the Storefront for Art and Architecture met this week at a Noho restaurant to honor its long-serving president El Comandante Belmont(e) Freeman. Monty–who directed the Storefront through the 1990s and the early Aughts and traces his family back to Cuba–shares with the nation’s own former presidente a strong ability to lead. At the dinner, director Joseph Grima presented el rey with the letter “R” (rebirth? revolution?) that formerly graced the Storefront’s transom. (It was replaced during the recent renovation.) Viva Monty! Viva Monty! VIVA MONTY!
