2009_12_lecaprice.jpgLe Caprice chef Michael Hartnell on why British critics seem to love the New York version of the restaurant while the New Yorkers decidedly don't: "American critics can be quite cutting. There are certain preconceptions about the Pierre...But there are some we’ve had to tweak. Chopped steak goes down very well in London, but it was panned here; it’s all about the perception of the dish. In the end, we decided that our American customers wanted a really good burger." [Times]
