The Michelin Bump

2014_marc_forgione12345.jpgMarc Forgione now has three New York restaurants and a cookbook, but things weren't always so rosy for the chef/restaurateur. Forgione tells Reuters about the rough times at his eponymous restaurant in 2009: "It was as slow as you could possibly imagine. Getting a Michelin star really increased our business right off the bat. I was ready to sell the business, then we got the star that week." [Reuters]
