Chefs hit the drive-thru
You can imagine the title — “When Good Chefs Go Bad” — when Esquire recently asked well-known chefs to sample fast food, uncover the secrets of chains, reveal their guilty pleasures and talk about burger joints.
Top chefs actually loved several chains, including In-N-Out and Dairy queen, but spewed their wrath on others. Some of the best quotes:
On Taco Bell:
“Utter bastardization of one of the finest cuisines in the world. What the fuck is a chalupa?” — Joey Campanaro, The Little Owl, New York City
On White Castle:
“I like White Castle, but White Castle does not like me.” — Craig Hopson, Le Cirque, New York City
