Fine dining for a fine cause


A benefit for the renovation of Washington Sq. Park on Monday evening called “Under the Arch” brought together fantastic food and the famous. Chef and restaurant owner Mario Batali, below, with his son Leo, 6, was the event host. Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi, above, had designs on some tasty hors d’oeuvres. Karen Duffy, a former MTV VJ and Village resident, right, was also an event host. Batali took a spin on a Vespa motor scooter that was later auctioned off. The Washington Sq. Park Council and Vanity Fair helped organize the event.
