Today we got the first soundoff from Richie over at the blog Line Cook, after he joined the team at the highly regarded Nopa. Things sound good for him, and there are some lovely pictures up on the blog.
It’ll be interesting to have a perspective from within the kitchen at this particular restaurant, since those in the know practically fall over themselves to praise it. Witness Jordan Mackay’s recent stroke job regarding the bar. Not that it and other lavish praise is not well deserved. Nopa has a good thing going with its fresh, local ingredients, careful process and apparent respect for the community. We look forward to hearing from Richie on the other side of the line.
