RIP Jean Banchet

I'm surprised that no one else started this thread. While I certainly have no quibble with the praised heaped on Charlie Trotter in recent weeks, Banchet deserves recognition also. Dining at Le Francais when it was under Banchet's direction was a superb experience. Banchet contributed much to putting Chicago on the map as a food destination.
