Still from the trailer to A Mouthful

In the trailer to A Mouthful, the upcoming documentary about Corton chef Paul Liebrandt, Eric Ripert said on camera, "Yeah, I ate his food. I have no comments."

From the inbox today is an official comment from Ripert, wanting to set the record straight: "It was said in 2001 or 2002 following a meal he had at Atlas during Paul Liebrandt's tenure as chef. Eric has since dined at Corton and had a delicious meal there. He has nothing but the utmost respect for what chef Liebrandt does."
