Akiko Katayama Tells Monday Room to Get the Cork Out

Picky, picky.
Picky, picky.

Not only does Iron Chef judge Akiko Katayama hate grease, but she’s finicky about her wine, too. At a dinner at Public’s lovely Monday Room with W’s Eddie Leida and Bar Blanc’s Kiwon Standen, she shames the sommelier by sending back a bottle she says is corked. Perhaps her palate is a little more refined than ours, but we’d happily eat that tasty-looking miso-baked bone marrow with a glass of sand.
