This just isn't true. He has a culinary and hospitality degree from UNLV and had three successful restaurants in Northen California BEFORE he went on "Next Food Network Star". There are now 6 or 7 restaurants in Norcal run by a very competant group and the food is really very good. Now I can't speak to what is being served in NY, that's a whole seperate deal but let's at least speak the truth.The Cen-Tex Smoker said:The issue with him as a restaurateur is that he is not, nor has he ever been a chef or a food person at all. He won a reality show to host DDD and Food Network has pimped him out as a food guy to do cooking shows and open restaurants. His restaurants are legendarily horrible and schlocky- but financially successful.
