Last week, Shawn Virene’s Champagne-obsessed eatery A’Bouzy made its debut, and now it’s officially spawned its own parody Instagram account called Overheard at A’Bouzy.

The fledgling account only has a few posts as of now, but its owners are already seriously bringing the snark. Outside of the jokes, though, the Overheard curators are already making some keen observations, like noticing that Virene brought over many of the restaurant’s staff members from Brasserie 19, where he served a lengthy tenure as general manager.

The rest of it, though, is just pure snark, directed at the restaurant’s wealthy clientele. Scope out a few of the posts below:

Of course, while Virene was at Brasserie 19, a similar Instagram account called Overheard At Brasserie 19 also launched. The account, which still operates today, shouting out the most ridiculous eavesdropped conversations in the swanky restaurant. Since it was started, Overheard at Brasserie 19 has racked up more than 7,000 followers.

Considering that A’Bouzy is less than a week old, don’t be surprised if this account doesn’t quickly become equally popular.
