Black Thursday Wire

valentines-day-2013-150.jpgWith Black Thursday fast approaching, a bunch of chefs talk to the Wall Street Journal's Bruce Palling about how much they hate Valentine's Day. Not only is it harder to make money with tables of two, but also diners tend not to return as often.

Says Roux: "Valentine's Day is the most boring day of the year for a chef." [WSJ]
