Eric Ripert on Surviving the Recession

2011_01_riperteconomics.jpgNew York chef Eric Ripert on how his restaurant Le Bernardin has survived the recession just fine, thank you: "We've seen a crush of the middle market. The low market is still vibrant, and the upscale market surprised everyone because -- at least in New York, I cannot talk for other cities -- it was good...we are at the numbers of 2007, which was the record year of all time I think for the entire industry. So we are back." [LA Weekly via -ENY-]
