I’m devastated. I knew Floyd, having interviewed him for an article I wrote 10+ years ago. I started going to Tabla, got to know him a bit, and had one of my most favorite meals ever at the chef’s ‘bar’ at North End Grill with my parents, followed by a trip up to the roof with Floyd to see his beautiful urban garden. I’ve continued to say he is one of THE kindest, loveliest people I’ve ever met.
P.S. I put this on the NJ board because he was from NJ, although he was known worldwide.
