    David is a close personal friend and one of the best chefs in the world. I was lucky enough to eat at his restaurants in Sydney and Toronto. He also has a place in NYC so try it out if you get a chance. So fortunate that I met this gentleman while at a bar in Delaware. We shared a Heineken and became friends for life.

    I'd assume two grown men would prefer each having a beer of their own, but maybe that's why I've yet to form lifelong friendships.

    Giving the name of the New York City restaurant would probably be helpful

    I believe it is D.F. Chang's. His middle name is Frank.

    I'm extremely jealous of the manly bond you two share.

    I'm now going to start stalking Iron Chef Hiroyuki Sakai because I want a piece of what you have.

    It is totally real. FBF took his wife of 38 years there for their anniversary of their first time saying "I love you" to each other. He has to hook up his scanner so he can post pics of the evening.

    If this turns out to be fake, I swear I'm going to start cutting myself again.

    The whole "Goodbye Liddy" hoax left me a in very fragile and vulnerable place. I can't take another blow like that.

    I enjoyed Bourdain's series with Chang THE MIND OF A CHEF, and I always liked whenever Chang would be on NO RESERVATIONS. He looks like a fun if very intense guy.

    I desperately want to try those pork buns everyone raves about. I don't know if they do them at the Sydney restaurant, but that shit is expensive so it may be quite a while before I try and have a meal there.
