Sergio Romero, Argyll's chef, was the subject of another recent Chef and Tell.

They had a tabasco braised short rib with a mushroom risotto that I hope stays on their regular menu after restaurant week. This was a great start for the week for us. Now that we've tried one of the great new restaurants in town, we're thinking one of the steakhouses next...."
