Steve Lewis talks to Nikki Cascone and Camille Becerra of Top Chef this week, and though they have some interesting things to say about typecasting and “sexy chefs” (Camille says she intentionally “tanked” her run for the top), the real jaw-dropper here is normally Über-diplomatic Uncle Steve on the subject of Todd English:
Todd was to open down on Kenmare Street; I’m not sure of the details on why it hasn’t opened or if it will, but I was supposed to design it. He was doing a restaurant upstairs and a club/lounge thing downstairs. Let’s just say I won’t talk to his lying ass again, and I’m not unhappy that he hasn’t gotten open down there.
You know, I’m not sure if I’ve called anyone an asshole yet on this blog, and people often tell me I kid glove some folks. So let’s take care of that right away. Todd English is a two-bit, lying punk and should, in my opinion, never be trusted by anyone – community boards, investors, women, anyone.
We can’t wait to hear what Todd has to say about this.
