Top N.Y. Restaurant Shuns Hedgies

Aug 14 2008 | 10:45am ET

The hottest restaurant in New York is getting a lot of attention for excluding one very well-heeled group: hedge fund managers.

The Waverly Inn & Garden in Greenwich Village “will seat just about anybody,” owner (and Vanity Fair editor) Graydon Carter tells The New York Times. But he adds that the restaurant does frown upon “any stars of reality TV and hedge fund managers.”

“For that reason, we screen calls from the 203 area code,” Carter adds. Area code 203 covers the hedge fund-laden country of southwestern Connecticut.

Perhaps the famed brusqueness of the stereotypical hedge fund manager is catching up with them. “I don’t like people who are rude to our waiters,” Carter says, keeping track of how guests treat the staff.

So hedgies take note, you catch more flies with honey.
