Luke - John Besh

What are friends for...

The only thing missing in the article is the disclaimer that one of Brett Anderson's best friends is the chef husband of John Besh's PR person Simone Rathle.

Luke is a decent restaurant but not all that great and very inconsistent.

Chef Besh is a great chef no doubt. But, he is just one guy. In my honest opinion the Besh restaurants are growing to quickly. August was great when John was at the helm with his special touch. Today is is still good but nothing special and it is very pricey. Luke is on it's 2nd or 3rd chef in as little as 2 years and La Provence is on it 3rd if not 4th chef in the same amount of time. The real test will come when he opens yet another restaurant in the new Roosevelt Hotel later this summer.
