Mitchell has cooked at many Michelin starred restaurants, but found a long term home at the once scrappy upstart (now empire) Momofuku. He worked his way up through the ranks of Ko, which is where I first encountered his thoughtful cooking. He is humble about his accomplishments, but it’s worth noting that he was CDC of Ko, a 2 Michelin star restaurant for 3 years. Despite all of his fine dining credentials, he is a wealth of information on American fast food, and would choose Jack in the Box as his number 1 spot, if forced to choose just one. He also ranks Coca-Cola thusly: 1a: Canadian canned, 1b: American canned, 2: McDonald’s fountain (only McDonald’s) 3: Mexican glass bottles. His musical knowledge is vast but he balances that with knowing way too much about the WWF. (Not the panda one. The other one.)
