AVENUEinsider’s post-work activity typically centers around watering holes the likes of JG Melon’s and PJ Clarke’s. This Tuesday evening, however, we were treated to something decidedly more upscale when the internationally celebrated interior designer Geoffrey Bradfield hosted an iced tea and champagne fete at the new plus ultra of New York cuisine, Daniel.

Always the consummate host, Mr. Bradfield warmly welcomed his close friends Whitney Fairchild, Andrea Karambelas, Sharon Bush, Amy Hoadley, Mark Gilbertson, Douglas Hannant, Frederick Anderson, Edmundo Huerta, Roric Tobin, Rachel Hovnanian, Susan Magrino, Jean Shafiroff, R. Couri Hay and Evie Tompkins for this intimate, early evening gathering, where kobe beef and valrhona chocolate gamely substituted for our usual happy hour pub grub.

Though not required, nearly everyone brought an item or two from their closet that could be included in the Posh Sale at the Pierre in May, which benefits Lighthouse International – a non-profit dedicated to fighting vision loss through prevention, treatment, and empowerment. This being a particularly style-savvy crowd, expect to see some serious designer duds up for grabs at the May event.
