This is part two of my interview with Darrel Truett, exec chef of Barolo Grill. Part one of our chat ran yesterday.

What do you enjoy most about your craft? The instant gratification of pleasing a guest. I can prepare a dish, and twenty seconds after I have it in the window, the customer has it in front of them. I love it when the server comes back and tells me that table 32 told him that it was the best meal they've ever had. Getting compliments like that makes the long hours worth it.
