Notable Quotable

Crawfish and Noodles chef/owner Trong Nguyen discusses the sacrifices he made to develop the menu that's made C&N one of the most popular spots in Chinatown.

I had a very good position as an executive running the Asian marketing department for the casino. But I had to either risk the business, throw the business away, close the door, and say 'I give up, whatever I put in there is gone.' Or, I had to give up my career at that time, and go back. But it was more for the face of the business, because people didn't think I was capable of doing this.
