The Tip Post
Never mind why. It was just part of the rollicking visit by legendary restaurant designer/developer/owner Pat Kuleto to the pseudo-legendary Tip last Thursday night. Not only did the irrepressible Kuleto provide fascinating insights into his design and development process — which is grounded in storytelling, of imagining the building as a narrative motivated by site, city and history — he also provided insight into his romantic initiation. Unfortunately, he then challenged his interviewer, a certain D/C ECD, to do the same. Luckily, the ECD did not also take him up on the challenge to sing, which Kuleto, a former folksinger, did beautifully, entirely accapella.
On behalf of a mesmerized, fire-code-defying crowd that spilled out the door of the Tip and a completely agog Duncan/Channon staff, we offer a tip of the Tip’s hat to Pat Kuleto, who is both one of the world’s great restaurateurs and raconteurs.
