2013_2_ALEX-STUPAK-thumb.jpgChef Alex Stupak (Empellón Taqueria and Empellón Cocina, NYC) on the reaction to him opening a Mexican-inspired restaurant: "It was difficult at first because everything I had expected to happen happened, which was people critiqued me for it or didn't understand why I would do that. They thought I was taking a step back or thought it was me taking the easy way out. There was a ton of absurdity to it. I'm very much an anarchist and a nihilist and I believe that people are basically sheep. They govern most of their decisions out of fear." [Reuters][Photo: Daniel Krieger]
