Media Lunch: David Rowan, editor of ‘Wired’ magazine
Thursday 26 August 2010
The venue: Côte. It was recommended by our managing editor and was convenient.
The company: Armando Iannucci.
The conversation: I was trying to charm him into helping us secure Peter Capaldi and Chris Addison for the cover of Wired.
On the menu: We never actually got lunch: the restaurant couldn't cope with a sudden influx of demand, so after waiting an hour we left. Armando did get a calamari starter and I got soup, but there was a Beckettian pause in service after that. The manager apologised and dispensed with the bill.
Come here often? We're producing an information-intense, design-led magazine, which doesn't leave much time for lunches. Breakfast, though, is scientifically proven to be efficient – so some days I schedule two.
