Success! You're on the list.

This morning, yours truly spent an hour-plus on Warren Rojas‘ hot seat over at Northern Virginia magazine. Truth be told, the mag’s readers went pretty easy on me (far easier than the putzes on City Desk who seem to think I’m a traitor for pointing out the obvious).

The most pointed (and funniest) question I got had to be this one:

Why does everyone kiss Jose Andres’ ass so much? He’s never here. And it’s all close quarters and a shoutfest at his best restaurants (minibar, Zaytinya).

Interestingly enough, the question came from “Penn Quarter,” where all of Andrés’ restaurants are located. Could it have come from some disgruntled soul within Andrés’ THINKfoodGROUP empire? Now that would be funny.

You can read my answer to that question, and others, over at Grill Warren.
