And here we were thinking that the odd dinner scene shot at Alex Guarnaschelli’s uber-posh New York hotspot Butter had fallen out of fashion since Gossip Girl wrapped. Oh, how wrong we were.
Anjelica Huston’s return to NBC’s much-anticipated (read: dreaded) Season 2 of Smash as Broadway producer Eileen Rand came in the form of a big reveal on Tuesday’s premiere — from behind a Butter menu. She was just looking over the restaurant’s offerings and sipping on her obligatory martini when her estranged husband Jerry shows up, trying to weasel in on her inconsistent fledgling musical. (Yes, for those of you wondering, Season 2 is somehow an even bigger disaster that the train wreck that became of Season 1.)
Fans of both Smash and Butter will be glad to know that no tablecloths, chairs, carpets, or glassware were harmed in the filming of this episode. (It is Eileen Rand’s custom to throw her martini in her ex’s face, if there are in fact both a martini and her ex-husband in a scene together.)
