Adam Shepard, Lunetta: "I suppose this would be a good place to talk about someone I admire, but I don’t think I would hire anybody. You cook Thanksgiving dinner yourself."
Andy D'Amico, Nice Matin and Mizza: "You want me to out somebody? I can’t do that."
David Shea, Applewood: "Myself."
To be fair, not all the chefs had a turkey-superiority complex. John Schaefer of Irving Mill would give the honors to his father-in-law, and if Park Avenue Autumn's Craig Kaketsu had to pick someone, he'd opt for Pierre Gagnaire. But your father-in-law or a Parisian legend aren't really local competition, either.
