Chefs love to travel — for inspiration, to experience the cuisines of other cultures or just to get away from the heat of their own kitchens. When they return, we hit them with some questions — where'd they stay, what'd they do and WHAT DID THEY EAT?! Next up, Takashi Inoue of the eponymous NYC restaurant.

You may have heard the news that national cupcake chain Crumbs Bake Shop went out of business, last week shuttering all if its 50 locations in 10 states and the District of Columbia. Many wrote about the bursting of the “cupcake bubble” — something our friend Allison Robicelli has written about beautifully in the past.

Guess what? We use our phones a lot more now.
