Quote: "A lot of respected chefs — grown men, mostly — who, in my opinion, could really benefit from putting their noses down and concentrating on their cooking, were asking to be picked as the best looking boy or girl at the food prom." As far as accolades, Gorham writes, "Of course we have our Restaurant of the Year award on display — it's in the bathroom." [Zester via Eater PDX]
