Rich Melman on Chicago

In an interview with Eater Chicago, Rich Melman, Chicago restaurateur and founder of the Beard Award-winning restaurant group Lettuce Entertain You, talked about the Chicago food scene: "I love what's going on in Chicago... I love when Grant Achatz gets all of these awards. I'm glad it's not in New York and LA. I'm glad that people think the best restaurant in the country is in Chicago. They'll go there and [then] go eat at another place. I like that there's attention brought to the scene. One of the things we're doing is attracting more talent from out of town and all over the world." [Eater Chicago]
