great for him and the mrs, i guess. he probably could sorely use some time off to recharge and reinvent.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

“When’s the last time I sat on a beach and read The Brothers Karamazov?” Trotter said. “It’s time.”


When's the last time anyone did that?

it's no secret that he's kind of a weird guy.

oh, to live in a country where the law determines what's a correct dice and the proper way to serve a table

I ate there only once about three years ago. My meal bordered on atrocious. The restaurant was running on fumes. Trotter was in Mexico trying to open a hotel-restaurant, which apparently never came to fruition, just as the one he planned in New York. A young apprentice-type in the kitchen, which was where we ate, proudly proclaimed that everything was cooked sous-vide, That says it all. It sounds like time passed it by quite a while ago; probably soon afte Grant Achatz hit town.
