As the old and overused adage goes, don't judge a book by its cover — but judging a restaurant by its toilet is a clutch move — at least according to Momofuku empire builder and Maple investor David Chang.
"Everything looks spotless — and it is spotless — but then you look at the back of the toilet, where people will never clean, and it’s filthy," the New York Post quotes Chang as saying at a talk in New York City earlier this week. "The key is... cleaning the bathroom toilet... If they care about that... rest assured everything will be taken care of," he advises. Of course, Chang would probably agree that no matter how clean a restaurant's bathroom is, it should never be used to store food.
