BEST STAR-CHEF EXPERIENCE ON A BUDGET Minneapolis 2001 -
All year it's been the strangest thing. Wander into Z Café, the quiet breakfast spot across the street from the more renowned Zander Café, and there he is, celebrated chef Alexander Dixon. Standing there. Behind the grill. Frying eggs. Toasting muffins. Sure, you're about to get the best, richest eggs Benedict you've ever imagined. But it's more than that. It's the strange, tingly, insidery feeling of seeing a star chef laboring just for you, and you skating out having paid only a wee little bill.
