Love the La Cornue... (11.05)
Shari: I won't lie, having a Michelin chef in house, it would be an excellent recruiting tool. What do you think?
Lou: Oh. It's a great kitchen. Love the La Cornue. But I would really miss, you know, real people "gastros" who light up when they eat something really special. You go private serving guys that might just have - whatever - for lunch.
Shari: You could lead the effort to expand our horizons.
Michelin Guides (French: Guide Michelin) are a series of guide books published by the French tire company Michelin for more than a century. The term normally refers to the annually published Michelin Red Guide, the oldest European hotel and restaurant reference guide, which awards up to three Michelin stars for excellence to a select few establishments. The acquisition or loss of a star can have dramatic effects on the success of a restaurant. Michelin also publishes a series of general guides to cities, regions, and countries, the Green Guides.
La Cornue is a flashy, eye-wateringly expensive French cooker brand.
