HARLEM—Chef Marcus Samuelsson gets the 21 Questions over at Daily Intel. He manages to mention his new restaurant Red Rooster four times but does have this awesome answer to the Old Times Square versus New question: "I love old Times Square; it's the first place I got to when I was 18 and landed in New York. They were filming a music video with Eric B and Rakim, with LL Cool J and some other guys in the background. People stole our bags, but despite that, I remember feeling like I had arrived."
