"At Martha's Table" with Keith McNally

Posted by

With eight-plus successful restaurants to his name, the New York Times has called Keith McNally "the restaurateur who invented downtown." On Monday afternoon, the owner of some of the city's most popular (and hard to get a seat at) restaurants, including Balthazar and Pastis, sat down with Martha for an hour of intimate conversation. The pair, who clearly have a mutual admiration and respect for one another, discussed everything from one of Martha's crazy nights at Pravda to Keith's recent pie-making adventures.
