Remember the show The Restaurant that featured celebrity chef Rocco Disperito and his eatery, Rocco's on 22nd? I was actually into it for a while. As a fan of cooking, I thought it was a somewhat interesting show.
You can read a blog entry about it here on my blog
Well, it seems that his dream, his lifelong goal of having a restaurant that featured his Italian upbrining, is dead
I say good. The women may love the guy, but I think as a person he has a lot to be desired. He is rude to his workers, inconsistent in his leadership, and not very loyal to those in his employ.
I've always enjoyed cooking. For a while I tinkered with the idea of being a chef. But watching this guy made me want to enter the food service business less and less. Every show I watched made me angrier at the way he treated his waitstaff and chefs. Maybe this is how master chefs and restaurant owners treat their staff in a big city like New York, but I believe that the majority of middle Americans were shocked at the way he related to his workers.
And on that aspect alone Rocco deserved to have his dream crushed.
