Illustrious Restaurateur Keith McNally Is Writing A Memoir

by Stephanie Maida · February 15, 2023

    If there's one thing to know about Keith McNally, it's that he absolutely refuses to hold back.

    And considering just how many of his #unfiltered thoughts and tales he regularly shares on social media, we can only imagine the really juicy stuff he's been saving for his memoir.

    Yes, the proprietor of legendary downtown hot spots including Balthazar, Pastis, and The Odeon is releasing a book, news of which he shared on - where else? - his now equally legendary Instagram account. 

    That would be the place where he's started beefs with everyone from Graydon Carter to James Corden, came to the defense of regular patron Monica Lewinsky, revealed his young crush on one Anna Wintour, cheekily bemoaned his divorce... the list goes on.

    So mark your calendars for November 7th, 2023 - that's when McNally's musings, titled I Regret Almost Everything, hits shelves. In his signature dry and self-deprecating style, he called it "the worst book ever written." 

    We absolutely cannot wait to read it."... stroke="none" stroke-width="1" fill="none" fill-rule="evenodd">
