Talking with Our Visitors: A Short Story

By D.J. Haslett, Admissions Staff

I was working in the Visitor Center recently when a mother and daughter came in. It was their first visit and we began to talk about the park. The mother asked where they could eat. I told her we had the Peacock Café and Rat’s Restaurant, and I added, “You know Chef Kevin from Rat’s Restaurant is on ‘Top Chef’ on TV.”

The daughter, about eleven, became so excited she could hardly speak. She had the biggest smile you ever saw and exclaimed, “That’s my favorite show!” The mother added, “She loves that show; we will be eating at Rat’s today.”

This really made my day.

Watch Kevin Sbraga, Executive Chef at Rat’s Restaurant at Grounds For Sculpture on Bravo’s Top Chef Wednesday nights at 9 pm.  To learn more about Top Chef, read bios of the this season’s chefs and see clips of past shows go here.
