1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    nigga whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa???????????


    if i go for another meal will you cook for me




    also i always thought it was pronounced stage like stay-je, but the stage at momofuku ko told me it was pronounced stah-je

    my short term plan is to now get a job and buy a meal at daniel with my signing bonus and eat a dish where mm prepped one of the 30 ingredients and then send it back saying the brunoise wasn't uniform enough

    Good on you. I have sincere hopes this turns into a full time gig.

    A week. He (chef de cuisine) told me to let him know when I'm available. I'm in the midst of prepping for another dinner party, so it looks like I'll be there the third week of February.

    that's great. i just hope they don't see the burgundy dinner post before you start. 5 days is a long time to peel carrots.

    might be wrong, but i don't think mgm is really looking at this as a job try-out. i think the last thing he'd want would be a full-time gig demonstrating his brunoise skills.

    Correct. It will be a good experience, and I will learn a lot from it, but I will probably not pursue more than that. I'm quite content right now cooking for dinner parties once or twice a month. There is a tremendous amount of work that go into each one, as I am only one person, but this way I receive the benefit of being able to have total control, which I very much like.
