One Arts Media Dinner Details: The Tesarian Section

Monday night’s dinner at One Art brought forth some spirited discussion with John Tesar. During the course of the meal, he dropped these little bits of news.

  • TV: He travels to Kentucky in the next few weeks for the Ultimate Extreme Chef Challenge, a follow on from his victory in the first episode.
  • TV: ‘Cooked’ is the working title for a ‘Kitchen Nightmares’ type show in which a scathing reviewer is hung, drawn, quartered and lightly sautéed for their remarks about a restaurant that is quite perfectly OK. Gordon Ramsay, watch your ratings butt.
  • Restaurants: Rumors about an additional one. No details yet.
  • 9/11: He is a survivor. He worked across the street from the WTC and on the morning of the attack was cycling to work 50 yards from Tower 2 as the plane went in immediately above him. He felt the heat ball of the explosion. Unhurt, and after recovering from the shock, he helped emergency personnel with the injured.
