Jean Luc, my mentor...
the guy who gave me a chance as a chef...
said to me it was God who created oysters and apples.
And you can't improve recipes like that.
But it is our job to try.
Being a young chef, I sure as hell tried.
I spent ten years cooking in Paris
and became head chef of Jean Luc's restaurant.
I was good.
Some nights I was almost as good as I thought I was.
At least that's what I'm told.
Then I destroyed it all.
My devils chased me out of Paris
and I washed up in New Orleans.
I sentenced myself to hard labor shucking oysters.
And today's the last day of my penance.
You could give me a raise and we'd be good.
Where the hell you goin'?
He complained about the eggs.
He said they were staring up at him like
the eyes of a dead clown.
He said he knows you from Paris.
He called you "Little Tony".
It's your father's hotel.
You can let yourself in.
The boudin noir was cooked yesterday.
It was warmed up five hours under a heat lamp.
A little crust had formed around it.
Are you drunk or stoned?
Or stoned or drunk or something else
no one apart from you has ever been?
You're serving seared tuna.
What happened to your self-respect, Tony?
This from a guy who once stole methadone from a dying sous chef.
You used to run the best restaurant in Paris.
Yeah. And you destroyed it.
- Hi, Tony. - You know, after you disappeared,
Jean Luc and I had to close the restaurant.
There were rumors you had been stabbed to death in Amsterdam.
There were drug dealers.
And Jean Luc's daughter claimed you made her pregnant.
And now I'm back. I'm going after my third star.
If you try to start a new restaurant in Paris,
there are at least a dozen people
who will try to have you killed.
不 不在巴黎 我要在倫敦開
Oh, no, no. Not in Paris. Here, in London.
I'm gonna take over your restaurant.
My advice to you, chef?
If you want to live a long life,
eat your own tongue.
Good afternoon, sir.
- So, where you been? - Uh, Louisiana.
- Doing what? - Shuckin' a million oysters.
- Why? - Ah, gave up drinking.
Oh, good for you.
Along with, uh, sniffing, snorting, injecting,
licking yellow frogs, and women.
Three years without a word. Nothing. You bastard.
- Celia's gonna be delighted. - Thank you.
She missed you, you know?
Really worried about you.
When Jean Luc died, we were afraid that...
You didn't know?
Oh, I'm sorry. I know how close you two were.
He was a great chef.
That is something, huh?
Sweeney! You just received one of the
best compliments I've ever heard.
This is Adam. Kinda notorious, back in the day.
Adam has just said your cacio
is one of the best he's tasted outside of Rome.
- What's your name again? - Helene.
Next time you make cacio,
toast the pepper first to remove the moisture,
and then you want to grind it by hand, yeah?
- Hello? - Yeah.
Is this asshole a friend of yours, Conti?
A close friend.
Also, add some chopped sage, why not?
- American? - Yeah.
- Yeah. Arrogant prick. - Well, he's a chef.
Jesus. Still crazy.
I had a long time to think about what you did to me in Paris.
When I was your sous chef at Jean Luc's,
we were like brothers.
So when I left, it's only natural that you were... hurt.
So you took your revenge.
Look, Michel, I don't know why I did that.
I know it was terrible, but...
what exactly did I do to you?
You don't remember what you did to me?
You called the health inspector.
After releasing rats into my new restaurant.
Oh, wow, that's terrible.
Conti told me you're going for the third star.
I need a job.
In Paris, they say we are "Old School".
Mr. Jones, your credit card has been denied.
There's no longer sufficient funds available to cover the cost of your room.
That's okay. I'm friends with Tony Balerdi.
Tony said to tell you that your knives are in the bag.
Yes, mate? What can I get you?
You marinate the lamb in za'atar and lemon zest, right?
