Earlier in the evening, Steve Adelman of Avalon surprised me with an appropriate shirt.
Now to create a one-time I GOT CAKED BY GASTRONOMMY shirt...
Cool fact: Food is another one of Aoki's many passions. He owns 4 restaurants in the United States -- and it ain't Benihana's. Can you figure out which ones are his?
