LEGENDARY LA CARVELLE IS TURNING 40,
BUT NOT THE LADIES WHO LUNCH THERE
OF A CERTAIN AGE
They're a whole new generation of upwardly noble and very mobile girls who lunch. And just like the ladies who lunched before them (many of them their mothers and grandmothers), their favorite place is La Caravelle. Far from long in the tooth and with nary a lift of a tuck, this grande dame of French restaurants celebrates its 40th birthday this month with a series of gala dinners and invitation-only events at which girls, ladies, and other equally notable figures from media, the arts, and politics will mingle and mix.
