Rocco v. The Culinary Gangs

New, 4 comments

2008_12_rocco.jpgIn a profile on Rocco DiSpirito, the Times gets a number of food world personalities to explain why the RD is being harassed by NYC's "culinary gangs." Choice quote goes to Gael Greene: "Mario still is doing restaurants...Bourdain was so funny and so amusing that he became a show-business personality...But somebody like Rocco, who is exceptionally gifted, seems to have thrown it all away — that’s why people are so upset about it.” Rocco's great line: "'Well,' he said, 'there’s been lots of therapy.'"
