Not only does Iron Chef judge Akiko Katayama hate grease, but shes finicky about her wine, too. At a dinner at Publics lovely Monday Room with Ws Eddie Leida and Bar Blancs 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 wed happily eat that tasty-looking miso-baked bone marrow with a glass of sand.
