    Laurent Tourondel’s Recipes Feed South Pole Residents; Greek Diner Ownership• Laurent Tourondel may not be working on a restaurant in Trump Soho, but he keeps himself busy with tasks like advising cooks at the South Pole on how to replicate his recipes. [WSJ] • Saturday’s East Side crane accident leveled Irish tavern Fubar, which fortunately was not open at the time. [NYP] • The owner of Stage Deli, which was shut down for health violations including “a severe vermin infestation,” claims the problems are limited only to the basement level, but last time we checked, rats aren’t really afraid of infesting restaurants at street level.

    Chef’s Desperate Plea: Nominate Me for an Award! We recently came across a poignant email written by a prominent young chef whose flashy cooking has earned him much praise, including ours. Judging by the note, which you can find after the jump, those plaudits weren’t enough: The chef pleads with his friends to nominate him for a prestigious James Beard Foundation Award (the organization takes suggestions on their Website, as we explained last week). Prepare to cringe. (Identifying details have been removed.)

    Nominate Katie Holmes for a Beard Award Unlike the Oscars or People’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” nominations for gastronomy’s highest honor are open to the public: You can suggest your favorite chef or restaurant for a coveted James Beard Award before midnight on December 15, simply by logging on to the foundation’s Website. Of course, if your cook isn’t already a big shot, his best chance for a beard is to go for awhile without shaving. (Though here, women are at a clear disadvantage.) Still, you can always tell that special person you nominated them and hope for an extra scoop of caviar — or rice and beans, as the case may be — at your next meal. And more importantly, you can get them on the Foundation’s radar, which is the key to future glory. James Beard Foundation Awards Nomination Form [James Beard Foundation]
