A former cook at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s restaurant Jojo has filed a sexual-harassment lawsuit against the restaurant, reports the Post. The defendant claims to be the victim of “vile, sexually explicit remarks and advances” from another cook, who the Post notes “even went so far as to text her a picture of his manhood.” When that act of courtship shockingly failed to elicit a romantic response, he retaliated by “throwing scraps of garbage into [her] pot of food” and turning off her stove while she was cooking.
