The latest on Thomas Keller

An interesting article in the online version of this week's NYMetro about Thomas Keller, the fire and delayed opening of his restaurant Per Se in New York, and where he's going with his career.

"So people keep telling me, 'Thomas, you look so great today.' I just think, I wish you could see inside me. It's just this churning. I look out the window, at where they're digging up the ground on Columbus Circle . . . " He looks out his massive windows at a maze of furrows at the corner of Central Park, where workmen are installing new water mains. "It's like that," Keller adds. "My insides keep getting dug up."

Read more about why the man who created the French Laundry doesn't really want to create anymore, he just wants to figure out if its possible to run two world-class restaurants at the same time on different coasts. "That's it," he says. "No more."
