Any one read this profile? The interviews were conducted around the time that he was opening Ko.
The guy seems very intense but passionate about his restaurants. I think it shows the best and worst about the Type A personalities in the food world. It takes that kind of single mindedness to get the job done, but it also makes people, not the least them the chefs and restaurateurs themselves, absolutely miserable.
Now I am curious to visit one of the Momofoku restaurants the next time I am in NYC.
