Back in the oughts, I edited Bergdorf Goodman Magazine, and started a regular feature called BG Conversation, in which I invited two eminent New Yorkers to lunch and recorded their conversations. Sometimes they knew each other, sometimes they only wanted to know each other. Often, the conversations sparkled. In light of the social media tempest pitting former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter against restaurateur Keith McNally, I dug out this gem, a March 2004 BG Conversation featuring Keith and the late essayist, screenwriter and director Nora Ephron from an archive on my hard drive.
