I just had the misfortune of wasting an hour of my evening watching this new show 'Conviction'!
I remember when Marc's food was among the best in the city. Many a spectacular meal at Centro in the late 90's when Thuet and Co. were one of the hottest dining tickets in town. After that, I remember having two wonderful meals at The Fifth. Marc's food was always robust, full-flavored and rich, yet delicate and smart. I have dined at his King Street West outpost twice over the last 3 years or so. All I can remember is the obnoxious, loud and out-of-place woman that is his wife Biana! I can't believe she has taken Marc Thuet and his esteemed reputation as a chef to nothing but a TV tabloid.
When the final incarnation of Bistro Bakery Thuet / Thuet / Bite Me! / Conviction finally comes to end (and no doubt it will) I think Marc should move on and leave his wife at home! Does anyone feel the same about his wife and how she has potentially destroyed his career? I know that I will never step foot in their establishment again based solely on her attitude, behavior towards staff and guests and the fact that she thinks she actually knows what she is doing!
Someone please save Marc Thuet!
