Gary Danko's farewell feast fantasy just keeps getting freakier. Not only does it involve a terribly awkward photo featuring two laughing medusas feeding one another "like at a Roman or Greek banquet," now the New Yorker reveals more of Danko's Last Supper vision, from the newly-released book My Last Supper: 50 Great Chefs and Their Final Meals:

"Gary Danko envisions a "delicious and awesome festival" set on the banks of a lake in Udaipur, and featuring eunuchs, platform beds, and fifteen wines, including a Nebuchadnezzar of Krug champagne from 1947."

As SF Covers remarks, "we all should thank Gary, the sole San Francisco chef in the book, for representing our gloriously and freakishly hedonistic city so very, very well!"
