New, 2 comments

charlie-trotter-personality-eater.jpgThe Chicago Tribune publishes the first in a series of articles examining chef Charlie Trotter's legacy and complicated personality. Part one clocks in at 5,000 words. Trotter, who'll be closing his eponymous restaurant on Friday, has long had a reputation for being a really, really tough boss. Homaro Cantu describes an incident: "Charlie walks into the kitchen and he goes up to Graham Elliot, and he puts his hands around [Elliot's] neck, and he's like, 'Don't you know that I will (expletive) kill you right now?'"
