Suvir was probably the most prominent restaurant owner poster on eGullet. I believe he was also a moderator of one the Middle Eastern boards - and then came the "DiFara Affair." It was all over but the shouting after that.
Hmm, it wasn't the DiFara affair. Come on, Off the Broiler, unmask sweetpea!
As it happens, I've never really met Hemant, so although he probably knows the name "Wilfrid" after all these years, I never had the multiple comps experience at Devi. I gave it good reviews anyway, because it was...good.
