Franklin Becker talks to Restaurant Girl about the closing of Sheridan Square (“When a restaurant is born, it is no different than a baby … Unfortunately, this baby was dropped on its head one too many times”), his audition for Le Cirque (among other dishes, he prepared a salad of “exploding blue cheese croutons, candied walnuts, and dehydrated ham”), and his future plans (“I would like to serve my version of New American cuisine — a cross between what I was cooking at Local, Capitale and Washington Square in Philadelphia”).
