Two Dover soles and a giant ribeye steak

Victor Mallet of the FT has lunch with Gore Vidal at the Mandarin Grill in Hong Kong. (Expensive meal! But then they had a lot of drinks--this feature is funniest, I think, when the interviewer arrives all excited about having a lavish meal of some sort & the person being interviewed is extremely abstemious & inhibits the ordering process. I think if you are the interviewee on such occasions you should be sensitive to the life of journalism & order dessert even if you don't want it so that the person interviewing you can have some if s/he wants!)
