Food Optional

I had lunch at the famed Frank Gehry-designed Condé Nast Cafeteria the other day. The place is spectacular. Custom-designed booths enclosed in curved glass panels, perimeter walls clad in blue titanium panels and ash-veneer plywood floors. Oh, and they have food.

The salad bar and the attitude were all too predictable. But the taco station and the plethora of desserts they had for the taking was perplexing — until I remembered that the binge-and-purge crowd needs something to keep 'em happy, too. Yum.
