Absentee Chefs

I’ve noticed more and more that special evenings out to destination restaurants are missing something special – the CHEF. I understand that you are taking your chances having the star cook for you on a Tuesday or Wednesday night (hey, everyone deserves some time off), but on a packed house Friday or Saturday night there is no excuse for food to be prepared by the staff.

Jamie Kennedy has let us down (more than once), but I knew he had multiple interests. I know hoping Keller would be present at the French Laundry is a long shot, but one still hopes. Most recently, Martin Picard chose not to attend Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal on a packed Friday night (which the staff told me was his only restaurant).

Are there any other paying Customers out there having my bad luck ?
