Wilfrid1 Posted October 20, 2005 Share Posted October 20, 2005 So this year they had the neat idea of laying out headshots of the city's important chefs and restaurateurs over a dozen pages, with a sort of upward sprouting family tree growing out of each skull showing who has worked for and with them, including locations and dates. The introduction admits that it's not an encyclopaedic guide - and it isn't (and a few things look wrong) - but it's the first time I've seen gathered in once place extensive historical information on New York chefs and restaurants. Previously when I've wanted to know exactly when Daniel became Cafe Boulud or when Wylie worked at Jean-Georges, I've had to search vaguely around the internet. Of course, you only need to know such things if you get involved in geeky conversation about New York restaurants: and that description certainly fits some of us. Odd decision to treat Ducasse as a chef working in New York but not Keller: maybe Ducasse was simply available for the photo shoot. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
