Ko-BOOM: Exceptions to the Rules

2008_04_chang.jpgThe AP interviews Chang about the Ko resy system. He mentions the big names he has turned away, his hatred for resy scalpers, and the famous chefs he would have to let in: "Ruth Reichl, editor-in-chief of Gourmet magazine, asked David Chang for the hook up. Sorry, he told her. A former top Microsoft executive asked too. Same answer: Nope...'If my parents want to eat there, they have to make a reservation too. It's really quite simple.'...But what if the godfathers of food approached him _ French masters like Michel Bras, Pierre Gagnaire or Joel Robuchon?...'If Michel Bras came in and wanted to eat...what the hell are we supposed to do?...Those are the only people we'd actually consider.'"
