"We have to prove ourselves so much more just to be considered kind of medium-high, whereas there are all these gents out there who are just ok...and it's ok for them to be just ok. " [9:30]

This week on The Main Course, Patrick interviews Frank Langello, Executive Chef of Babbo Italian restaurant in Manhattan. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, Frank began working at Le Cirque 2000 on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Three years later, he walked into Babbo with one copy of his resume, and he has been their Executive Chef ever since 2002. Frank tells us about the difficulties of running a busy restaurant with a very small kitchen, on a quiet street in Manhattan, and later, about the tragic effects that Hurricane Sandy bestowed upon his Staten Island home. This program has been sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards and Sons. Today's music provided by Shadowbox.

"[Losing my house to Sandy] changed the way I look at life, and it actually changed the way I work at the restaurant." [32:30]
