Gothamist runs an extensive Q&A with Andrew Carmellini. While he's cagey about his plans now that the deal on the Tasting Room space fell through—"I look at four or five spaces a day, every single day, trying to find the right balance..."—he has an interesting take on who he would hire: "Now sometimes stages make appointments, follow up, send their resume, and then don’t even show up- don’t call or anything. I’d rather have someone who has no experience, because then you can mold them to your style, and they’re more receptive to working the kind of progression you’ve set up for your kitchen." [Gothamist]
