We still have a long way to go – but today could be an important first step in our fight to #SaveRestaurants and get the relief we need. With the House expected to vote on the stimulus bill today, it’s more important than ever that you call your rep and tell them to vote YES. Our local restaurants depend on it. #SaveRestaurants@indprestaurants

Floyd Cardoz, bottom center in 1994 on the Lespinasse team, was a kind family man. This pic, although a bit fuzzy, is how I removed him, leading the team. We were just talking to each other recently planning Gray Kunz's memorial.I'll never forget him teaching me Indian cooking techniques like tadka,how to use Anardana powder, or when to use Black Cardamon  instead of Green. RIP brother Floyd#chefs #convid19
