EAST VILLAGE ? Alex Stupak takes to First We Feast to discuss his guest chef series The Push Project, which doesn't make any money for his restaurants: "I think one of the key ingredients to a long career of creativity and progression is a healthy dose of destruction every now and then. The only thing you are trying to destroy, however, is whatever comfortable rut you are in the process of making for yourself." [First We Feast]

EVENT WIRE ? Tickets to René Redzepi's MAD Symposium go on sale March 11. This is the third edition of Redzepi's annual think-fest, which will be co-curated by Redzepi, Momofuku's David Chang (who has presented at MAD twice), and the team from Lucky Peach. Eater National has more. [Eater National]
