When Richard Chai isn't chowing down at Indochine, his frond-walled second abode, he's hosting pals and kin alike for the holidays. Can we get an invite next year, s'il vous plaît? 

Family and friends! I do a family thing during the day, and then my friends who don't have a place to go usually come over to my place at night. 
Sounds like a rollicking party!
Nope, it's just a late dinner. 
Are you adept in the kitchen?
I don't really cook, unfortunately. 
What's your favorite 
I'm a big foodie, so anything that tastes good. Nothing specific! 
OK, since you're a foodie...one of your NYC gastronomic faves, please!
There are those classic institutions that I love; I just had dinner at Indochine. 
Love that iconic wallpaper; would you ever crib that leafy print for your apartment?
No, I'll leave that to Indochine so I at least have a place to go as a home away from home!
