Favorite Kind of Food: I mean, I like everything but my favorite is ethnic food. I find it more intriguing. I’ve worked in fancy restaurants for 25 years, but my favorite foods are still Chinese, Thai, Indian pretty much everything.
Least Favorite Kind of Food: Fancy.
Wait Dave Pasternack doesn’t like fancy food? We never had any doubts as to the guy’s talents, but to rise above his simple culinary inclinations, abandon kung pao, and successfully run a kitchen where the char and spotted bass hovers near 30 bucks is quite an accomplishment. We recognize your extraordinary efforts and salute you. Jessica Coen
