NYC vs. PDX

Two of NYC's hottest new chefs, Matt Lightner and Andy Ricker, got their start in Portland and the Oregonian looks at what brought them to the big city. On Ricker: "Encouraged by friends in New York, [he] wanted to see if Pok Pok's Thai street food concept could take off in a bigger city." And Lightner says: "I've always aspired to be in New York and work here. It's just an amazing community of talented chefs." [The Oregonian]
