You're making an omelet. What's in it? I hate omelets.
After-work hangout: Home with my wife and our three dogs. I'm almost 46, and my days of carousing after work are long over.
Favorite Denver restaurant other than your own: Z Cuisine. Eating there is like being a guest at a wonderful dinner party.

Favorite celebrity chef: Mario Batali. He cooks like a wizard, he's funny and outrageous, and he has a vision — not just of Italian food, which he's changed more than any other chef in America — but of leadership: He hires strong, talented chefs and makes them partners.
Celebrity chef who should shut up: Tom Colicchio. You can't call yourself Mr. Farm-to-Table once you've made a Diet Coke commercial and shepherded a bunch of cheftestants through a Top Chef challenge using Pringles potato chips.
Hardest lesson you've learned: That in a restaurant, service matters as much as food. Duo is as much of a success because of the warm, competent and unpretentious service as it is for the food. As chefs, we assume that a restaurant begins and ends with the food, but of course that's a long way from the truth.
What's next for you? I'd love to find a publisher for my cookbook.
