There are only a few people who can get seated at any restaurant in the Hamptons without making a reservation first. That list might include Billy Joel, Howard Stern, maybe that woman from the Food Network who runs the gourmet store in the neighborhood, probably Barack Obama.
Obviously, the list, at least at Hamptons hotspot Beautique, does not include House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Unfortunately for Nancy, she, reportedly, had to find that out the hard way.
[A] source said Pelosi had wanted to dine at the hotel’s restaurant, Beautique, that night, but arrived without a reservation and they were forced to turn her away.
“She was accompanied by a lot of security. Guests like Howard Stern already had tables,” says a spy. We’re told the restaurant did put together some room service so she could dine in her room.
While it was not clear why Pelosi was staying at the fashionable spot, or the reason for her visit to the Hamptons, a rep for the top Democrat insisted her security detail ate at McDonald’s and one staffer had food in their room.
That’s almost sad, if the story didn’t involve Nancy Pelosi who, by the way, denies that she ever requested to eat at Beautique. She was, however, a guest of the hotel that houses Beautique, The Capri, and was heard to complain to friends that she didn’t get any sleep because a party at Beautique raged until 4am and she could hear the music in her room. She did not, of course, complain to The Capri’s ownership, since she probably wants to stay there again and would rather the front desk clerk not think of her as a grouchy old lady.
Of course, they might not have taken notes about her Hamptons outing, and it’s lively entertainment, for the next time Pelosi accuses a Republican of being out of touch with the common man (who also aren’t allowed into Beautique). But we did.
