I'll be back soon!

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been M.I.A. again. I really really promise I'll be back posting after the holidays. I'm just going to take a little breather. I'm stockpiling some great reviews and recipes and will see you all again in the new year.

Happy Holidays!

Pack Your Knives and Go!

I got an inside scoop today about one of the restaurants I recently reviewed.... Forte di Asprinio. You can read my full review by clicking here. To sum it up, it was a very bad experience with mediocre food and horrible service.

The breaking news is that Stephen Asprinio, the Top Chef contestant whose name is etched on this eatery, just got FIRED!* I'm assuming they'll be changing the name of this restaurant. I really hope that they change the concept too.

*As of 12/4, Stephen's departure has been confirmed. The executive chef remains with the restaurant.

UPDATE:Stephen e-mailed me to let me know he sold his shares of Forte to pursue other opportunities in Dubai and Las Vegas (he was not fired, as I stated in the original post). I wish him the best of luck on these new ventures!
