Yes, we know the Red Rooster is in New York, but because we like Marcus Samuelsson and love what Nicole Pederson is doing at Samuelsson's C-House in Chicago, we wanted to talk about the Ethiopian-born, Swedish-raised chef for just a bit.
Samuelsson is looking to hire a top, passionate bartender for his Harlem restaurant, but instead of making the decision himself, he's having the top five candidates make a 30 to 60 second video that will ultimately be voted on by the public. The person with the most votes gets the gig. Pretty clever. Eater New York has all the details.
