How Long

a year ago ep. 430 feat. Ignacio Mattos 01:05:06

Ignacio Mattos is an Uruguayan-born chef currently living in New York. His restaurants, Estela, Altro Paradiso, Lodi, and Corner Bar, are some of the city's busiest and best. We chat bout our travels to Seattle, a recap of Them Jeans' throwback DJ set, our Washingtonian-steam punk Robert Downey Jr. server, he has a dead person's knee, cauliflower ear is sexy until you have to lick that thing, facials, does Ignacio get in there and clean the toilet, the pleasure of paying for things, one time he got embarrassed and had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of mushrooms, how many dishes are too many? When it comes to sex and food, it's hard to have it all, how to eat a croissant the right way, don't trust someone who doesn't like chocolate, it's probably super fun to cook the food for room service too, Ignacio's thoughts on negative reviews and the star system, and we try to convince him to open a restaurant in Las Vegas against his will.
