3-Star Michelin Pastry Chef Johnny Iuzzini receiving counsel from a stranger..

Eater reported yesterday that Johnny Iuzzini is leaving Jean Georges after 10 years.  This comes on the heels of two other three-Michelin, four-NY-TImes, starred chefs announcing their departures earlier this year–Michael Laiskonis from Le Bernardin and Dominique Ansel from Daniel.  Johnny certainly has been building his brand over the last few years as head judge of Top Chef: Just Desserts and generally being out and about at all the national food shows, like the New York Food and Wine event.

Whoever took that first photo is an insanely talented photographer, to capture the exact moment you gave him this life changing advice. ;)

Totally, a regular Wegee of the 2000’s – destined for Pulitzer for sure!
