Le Bernadin’s Eric Ripert on the future of fine dining in Manhattan – Business Insider

On March 13, Michelin-starred restaurant Le Bernardin closed its doors after dinner as the pandemic spread across the US.

On the night of the closing, chef and co-owner Eric Ripert told Business Insider in a recent phone call, the restaurant employed 180 people.

The seafood restaurant, known as one of the best in the world and one of five NYC restaurants awarded a full three Michelin stars, was almost always at full capacity before the pandemic — 150 people — according to Ripert. “When we closed, things were not slow,” he said.

Now, there are only four people in Le Bernardin’s kitchen every day, and Ripert has eschewed takeout for charity. Every day, the skeleton staff whips up hundreds of meals for healthcare workers near the restaurant’s Midtown Manhattan location in collaboration with World Central Kitchen, the Jose Andres-founded aid organization.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
