Q&A with the Chefs

Do you cook at home?
Nicolas: Yes, and it’s classical French or Mediterranean. My mom is Lebanese. I watch the Food Network.
Nathaniel: Our day is long and spontaneous. I try to fix dinner two times a week. My family is Chinese, so dumplings and noodles and wok-cooking are a big thing. 

What is your comfort food?
Nicolas: Foie gras and anything with truffles.
Nathaniel: Food from Chipotle or Chinese or Vietnamese food

Which are your favorite restaurants?
Nicolas: Central, Rays the Steaks, Blue Duck, Nora, Rasika and Oyamel.
Nathaniel: (Undecided)

What’s in your fridge?
Nicolas: A lot of Honest Tea, hummus, baby carrots. Lots of cheese and baguettes. I eat here twice a day.
Nathaniel: Not much. Green onions and a bottle of champagne, but I do have sesame oil in my pantry and rice and vinegar.
