Congratulations to David Waltuck of Tribeca longtime restaurant Chanterelle, who celebrates his 30 years of cooking great food there this month. He spoke to NY Times' Frank Bruni last week about the ins and outs of it all.
"What’s the best New York City restaurant that no one talks about? (We’ll trust you not to plug a friend.)
You did something awful and are sentenced to die. Dead Chef Walking! What’s your final meal — and we’re not talking five or six courses, though you can have dessert — before you go?
A really good rare hamburger, extra bacon, crisp French fries with mayo and a good Rhone. No dessert."
