What is your favorite restaurant?
Jennifer Rubell: The restaurants I go to are divided between the ones that I’ll go to once a month forever that I just . . . it . . . you know I just check in there all the time, love it, I always go back for something. That’s a part. Then I check out almost every significant new restaurant. I live in New York, so in New York. But wherever I am I’m always interested in what’s new, what young chefs are doing, what’s going on. And I’ll go there once or twice. Sometimes I get obsessed with a new restaurant and I’ll go there every other day for a month. But that’s sort of like the new restaurant piece. And then there are major restaurants that when I’m really almost in a rut when it comes to creating new recipes or thinking about food, I go to because they’re always inspirational. They’re always amazing. And they always give me something and sort of restore my faith in cooking. And they’re sort of the temples that are necessary.
