watched it last night over a nice dinner of pasta, the "main" story is not too interesting at all. the interviews with some of the big chefs were good though. Sirio Maccioni's interviews were worth a netflix queue if you have netflix....I wouldn't buy the DVD or rent it from blockbuster for 499$ though.

All those "names" listed, really had nothing to do with the documentary other than some little interviews...and the main story....just was not interesting. 2 guys opening up a bistro/restaurant in "hipster" Williamsburg (Brooklyn)...didn't get much deeper than that other than the "almost bailing at last minute" and "taking the jump" feelings...

the interviews from the chefs that made it, is the only reason to rent it. imo. its a good dvd.

Yeah, I have to admit we really enjoyed Sirio's interviews and stories....even in the "extras". Funny guy. It was worth a netflix for his Onasis and Sinatra stories.
