Today on our episode #376 of All in the Industry®, Shari Bayer is on-location in NYC with her guest Christophe Bellanca, executive chef and owner of Michelin starred Essential by Christophe, his debut restaurant on New York’s Upper West Side, where he has embraced an à la carte-only menu inspired by his classical French training, serving dishes he loves to cook, eat, and share with others. Before opening Essential by Christophe, Christophe worked in some of the world’s most prestigious restaurants over his distinguished career, including as the Culinary Director for Joël Robuchon USA, overseeing the teams at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in New York and Miami, and Le Club in New York. He was responsible for carrying on Chef Robuchon’s legacy after his passing while moving the restaurants forward and mentoring the next generation of culinary talent.
Today's show also features Shari's PR tip to be essential; Industry News on FX's The Bear (available on Hulu) receiving 3 Golden Globe Awards and 6 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series, among others; and Shari's Solo Dining experience at the Bar Tasting at JP and Ellia Park's Atomix, a 2 Michelin star restaurant in NYC featuring New Korean cuisine, which has received 3 stars from The New York Times, and is currently ranked #8 on The World's 50 Best Restaurants 2023.
