Media Gossip: Caviar Baked Potatoes.

One of the best parts about dating a New York Times reporter is getting to meet other New York Times reporters.

When I stopped by Alex’s office a few weeks ago, I rode the elevator down with one of my fashion-writing heros, when I suddenly turned into a bumbling eight-year-old. He was like, “How are you?” And I said, “Nice. Uh, Good. What? Thanks.” Luckily, I pulled myself together enough to talk about our weekends. He said that he had made his boyfriend a baked potato stuffed with caviar. Sigh. How. Incredibly. Fabulous.

  1. Your comment cracks me up!

    what an absolutely perfect quick meal idea! Add some champagne and pop in Sex & the City!

  3. now that’s one decadent little spud!

  4. I’ve never had caviar too! But this potato looks delishhhh.

  5. yes, i have to take elevators, just not happily… :(

  6. Sigh. My life is such a bore darling. A wretched bore compared to yours.

  7. I’ve never tried caviar, but that photo certainly makes me want to try!

  8. Gosh, I can’t imagine. The closest equivalent might be running into a local news anchor and finding out they’d had scallops for dinner. Just not nearly as fabulous.

  9. Oooooh, caviar! Living in Iran as a little girl, I became addicted to the stuff.
    Unfortunately, I was weaned when I left Iran. It was that or go bankrupt.

  10. drooling now. YUM.

  11. looks completely delicious
