Chef Shuffles

raphaelfrancois-521.jpgLe Cirque's new chef, Raphael Francois, talks with Andrew Friedman about cooking an audition meal for the whole Maccioni family, his updates to the menu, and the pressure of pleasing long-time regulars. One thing he won't change is Daniel Boulud's paupiette: "Some of our customers always order that paupiette...If I change it, I'm going to get clients who ask me to do it the old way. At the end of the day I'm going to have two paupiettes." [Toqueland]
