And I’m off to Eleven, with the charming Melissa Perello (Frances). It’s been an honor to be here in New York, surrounded with such friendly, talented, gracious people. What a wonderful industry. Thanks for having me! Cheers and congrats to all--whether there is a medal around your neck, or not--because the food you create, the drinks you pour, the spaces where you host us, and the hours you work are so appreciated by all! Ciao!!

Jacques Pepin. Wrap him up, take him to go. What a delightful man.
