[Photos by NEIL RASMUS for PMc] Last night, The Four Seasons restaurant celebrated its 50th Anniversary, and friends and patrons of the iconic landmark gathered for a good old fashion roast of owners Julian Niccolini and Alex von Bidder. Guests included some noteable foodies including Martha Stewart, Daniel Boulud, Jonathan and Lizzy Tisch, Peggy Siegal (who's speech was so bad it apparently made Richard Johnson hiss), Bob Grimes, Liz Smith, Pete Paterson, and Gael Greene among others. Eater's Ben Leventhal did a play by play on twitter. More photos below...
