Wishlisted: I Regret Almost Everything*, Keith McNally’s memoir. Not an Instagram post goes by without someone telling McNally, “you should write your memoir”. Well, little did we know, he already has. McNally’s story as a restauranteur is fascinating. He regularly dishes up anecdotes of personal and professional misdemeanours as the founder of such illustrious eateries as Balthazar, Pastis and Lucky Strike, to name just three.
Although he’s well known in the industry, it’s his Instagram that has really made him famous. From his Maître Ds’ nightly reports detailing NYC restaurant life (the celebrity regulars, the big tippers, the obnoxious luvvies), to his fabulous art collection (that time he stumbled across some old forgotten Saul Leiters in his storage unit) and bittersweet tales of ex-wives and girlfriends, he’s a naturally gifted, if unfiltered, storyteller.
