Apparently he was docking his line cooks for lunch breaks he never let them take.

Good !!!

Yes there is a certain poetic justice isn’t there?

The employee suit was in the Swedish press too.

He also got sued by his real estate broker a couple of years ago:

I always disliked his food at Aquavit, and got dragged there by more Swedes than I can count.

For the life of me I also can’t figure out why anyone would go eat soul food cooked by an Ethiopian raised in Sweden when Sylvias is right down the block.

Because it was good, and Samuelsson is a celebrity chef, I’m guessing. Ethnic background doesn’t really matter, or shouldn’t
