Our favorite Craigslister recently checked in to let us know that his ad offering a seat at Ko had sparked interest from a “dominatrix/food blogger” and “atheist carnivore.” Hm. Also in the running, according to her blog, Maggie is Restless, was Magdalena Kennedy. She describes the Ko-thario as “funny, charming, lots in common, cute. Looks like a tall dark Jewish Michael Cera,” and goes on to post her letter to him in which she says she’s an “omnivore / recipe anthologist / windowbox gardener / online journalist.” Somehow, however, the Ko-thario wasn’t convinced— his ultimate choice was Dominique of Dominique Eats Out. Quite a score, but he’s keeping a level head. “I don’t think for a second that food-loving women are competing to go out with me,” he tells us. “I know full well that they’re ‘competing’ to go to Ko to eat foie gras and pork fat. I am, admittedly, just shy of extraneous in this equation.” Now that’s modesty worthy of David Chang himself.
