Warning: Nieporent Not Afraid to Ban You from Nobu

LX TV scores a sit-down with Drew Nieporent this week, grilling him on topics ranging from how not to open a new restaurant to blogging. Among many candid moments, we also get the story of how he and 'Bob', and a bevy of celebrities, opened Tribeca Grill, back in the day, using the now-classic strategy of buzz by way of your famous investors. What is made most clear about Nieporent is that he remains a consummate restaurant pro, whether that mean he's seating his mother next to Bruni or blacklisting diners at Nobu who get uppity.
