Best Sushi Chef (2013)
— Burt, we never go anywhere nice anymore. Remember when you would woo me with dinners at that great sushi restaurant, the one with eight seats and impeccable fish? Why don't we go there tonight?
— Martha, there's no way I can get us a table at Naoe. Chef Kevin Cory is booked weeks in advance.
— I'm tired of excuses. I want uni, and I want it now.
— But it's just not that simple. Kevin Cory isn't your run-of-the-mill chef. He's a five-star sushi master acclaimed by Forbes. The New York Post called Naoe one of the best restaurants in the nation. Folks travel from out of town to go to his omakase-style joint — even though it starts at $160 a person. Imagine that!
— Oh, I get it. You think a night out with me isn't worth that kind of expense.
— Well, dear, I probably won't ever win this argument, but I do know one thing for sure: Kevin Cory's cooking is — and always will be — absolutely priceless.
