Haute Scene: Selby’s Welcome Back Party

The godfather of Silicon Valley. A cofounder of YouTube. Google employee number 11. A partner at Kleiner Perkins. Was it a business summit? No, just another ordinary evening at Selby’s, the go-to dinner spot for the tech cognoscenti. Well, not completely ordinary: Dom Perignon and caviar were served to the select group invited by hosts Nicole Lacob, Lisa Zabelle, Allison Speer, and Tim Stannard, owner of the Bacchus Group (which oversees Selby’s), to mark the restaurant’s reopening. Goodies aside, people said the real treat was being together again, after a long pause due to the pandemic.
