Lure reeled in a fashionable crowd for its 20th anniversary

Some 300 New York notables headed to the famed Lure Fishbar on the corner of Mercer and Prince on Tuesday evening to raise a glass of champers (or a spicy marg or two) to restaurateur John McDonald’s beloved subterranean Soho eatery. Partygoers feasted on signature Lure sushi rolls, bites of spicy tuna crispy rice, and mini Bash burgers, while DJ Kieren Taylor kept the vibes immaculate at the yacht-style space until late. Among the room enjoying the milestone moment were Ann Dexter-Jones, Jennifer Fisher, Candace Bushnell, Maye Musk, Cynthia Rowley, Nicole Miller, Bianca Jebbia, Jaimie Alexander, Brendan Fallis and Hannah Bronfman Fallis, Carlos Quirate, Gustaf and Tracy Demarchelier, Henrik Lundqvist, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Scott Sartiano, Nelly Moudime, Sean Lennon, Sophie Elgort, Will Cotton, and Zani Gugelmann. Congrats!
