    It should really come as no surprise that the emperor, Michel Richard, has no clothes. Only in critically deprived, insecure, DC did he ever gain any traction beyond that of the second rate baker, nurtured by the likes of no-nothing, bovine fraud Phyllis Richman.

    In Los Angeles where he first tried to establish himself he had a kind of glorified doughnut shop. His first attempt at launching a restaurant (during a time when it seemed an exciting new venture was popping up every week and talented pastry chefs were honing at places like Ma Maison, Michael's, ) the Citrus in West Hollywood arrived with a decided thud. He was certainly never considered by or among the surge of talent propelling American cuisine forward as worthy or as a peer. Only in DC was he able to bamboozle the bureaucracy.
