Chef Eric Ripert on the Renovation of Le Bernardin

Chef Eric Ripert on the Renovation of Le Bernardin

There is a majestic magic to New York’s Le Bernardin. Before arriving in New York in 2008 to attend my first New York City Wine & Food Festival, I preemptively made pre-theatre reservations at the famed seafood restaurant. Dining with my mother, the decor of the room, the bustle of the service staff, and the […]

2010 Food Network NYC Wine and Food Festival: Day 2

2010 Food Network NYC Wine and Food Festival: Day 2

My Saturday night in New York was a busy one. A few hours lounging around the Eater.com Blogger Lounge, watching chefs and writers mix and mingle all afternoon, and I was off to the TimesCenter near Times Square. Arriving to hear British chef Heston Blumenthal talk about the philosophy behind his avant garde cooking, I […]

Daily Blender Exclusive: Chef Eric Ripert

Daily Blender Exclusive: Chef Eric Ripert

Even with applause and accolade, Chef Eric Ripert has kept his culinary kingdom rather manageable. With restaurants in only a handful of cities across the East Coast – D.C.’s Westend Bistro, Philly’s 10 Arts, and Blue on Grand Cayman Island – Ripert has the recognition without the schedule, present most nights in the kitchen where […]

When I started this Friday Five, I was thinking I’d just jot down a few of the restaurants I’m still needing to visit. As I started compiling my wishlist, however, it grew until it became more of a collection of culinary treks I’d like to make – and all the restaurants I want to hit […]

A Look at the Business of Restaurants

A Look at the Business of Restaurants

One of the most fascinating experiences I have in writing this site is the opportunity to learn how others within the food industry run their operations. From large, well-known kitchens, like those of Le Bernardin or Dahlia Lounge, to smaller kitchens like Momofuku Ko or Portland’s Scratch, I’m always interested how the wheels of each […]

The Side Dish: Are Restaurants Really Worth Their Awards?

The Side Dish: Are Restaurants Really Worth Their Awards?

Perhaps I set my restaurant reviewing bar a little too high. Perhaps my visit to New York’s Le Bernardin ruined me for all other restaurants. From the attentive service to the friendly staff to the impeccable and outrageously perfect food (not to mention the gorgeous chef) I was completely blown away by my experience. I […]
