Had a great session with future doctors Lara & Charles a few weeks ago. Its always wonderful to work with a couple that is fun and spontaneous: they needed very little direction. Mom says that Lara looks a bit like a young Meg Ryan, and I totally see that. We got just about the last of the fall color at Percy Warner Park, and then did a quick set of photos on Vanderbilt’s campus after dark.
Thanks for a fun session guys!
My big brother Andrew is Executive Chef of Sepia Restaurant in Chicago, IL. We got some HUGE news today. Andrew’s restaurant was awarded a star by the renowned Michelin Guide. The Michelin Guide is by FAR the most important guide for people serious about cuisine worldwide. The guide rates restaurants on a scale of 1-3 stars, which correspond to the original purpose of the guide to promote auto travel (and thereby sell tires) when it was founded in the early 1900′s.
* Worth a stop
** Worth a detour
*** Worth a special journey
In modern terms, getting a Michelin star is a HUGE achievement. Only 23 restaurants in all of Chicago received a star or more from the Guide. Getting a single Michelin star is generally considered to be a much bigger deal than getting 4 or 5 stars from any American publication. You can see a full list of Chicago honorees here.
Congratulations Andrew! We are hugely proud of you!
