"I dont have a lot of patience for that kind of food, where it becomes the center of the whole experience and you cant have a sustained conversation because the waiter has so much information to impart ... I don't know, it felt like work." Michael Pollan, who recently celebrated his 50th birthday at the French Laundry, and calls it "a four-hour ordeal" followed by a day of recovery. Hope he didn't say this to whoever was paying! [Denver Post via Eater]
