I sat down with Paul
later after thingscooled down.
Interestingly enough,he seemed quite human.
I saw the father.I saw the husband.
He is passionateabout his guests.
We agree this decisionneeds to be unanimous?
So why don't wetalk about Bistro?
How do we createa destination
and get our moneyout of it with 37 seats?
We really have to turnthose tables.
Though it's small,you definitely can tell
that Bryce has some heart.
And the wholebeing there for years,
guests putting in the moneyfor him to buy it,
I mean, he is trulya champion.
I do like Bryce,
but we haven'teven had a chanceto taste the food yet
because foods weren't keptat the right temperature,
the place hadn'tbeen cleaned in forever.
I'd like to see himbe successful.
I mean, he's a kidwho's worth puttinga little effort behind
and seeing what happens.
All right, so I'll godeal with Paul and Elements.
I'm gonna workwith their chef.
I'm thinking first and foremostwe add some sous vide equipment.
That's gonna make ita lot more efficient.
What does it matter?Paul is un-investable.
He's fighting withthe people who have money intheir pocket to help him?
He's foolish.He's uncontrollable.
You weren't there whenI sat down with him.
End of discussion.I won't do it.
I want to look andanalyze this restaurantfrom top down.
If that's what youwanna do, John, fine.
We also agree they haveproduction potentials there.
See you later, guys.
- Really?- Yeah.
He's un-investable to me.
