TREME WATCH — On Sunday night's episode of Treme, Janette Desautel went back down to New Orleans to bail Jacques, her former sous chef, out of jail. When she asks her boss David Chang for some time off, he tells her, "Well, if you're doing this to help out your sous chef, you're doing what you need to do. On the other hand, if you're going back home because there's some dudes that are trying to poach you from my kitchen to help you set up your own shop, then yes, you're an asshole." He lets her go.
