There was lots of buzz in the papers and on the blogs today about Chef Marco Pierre White. The Chopping Block, his new reality show, premieres tonight on NBC. About halfway into Carla Spartos’s article, “Chop Chef,” in the New York Post is this gem: “No wonder White counts Russ & Daughters as his favorite lunch spot in New York.”
