In our new series Hot On the Burner, we analyze which restaurants and chefs are having their best week ever in the press — and who’s getting burned, and hard. This week, it’s raining Roy Choi, and hard.

Hot On the Burner: David Chang
A close second to Choi this weekend, Chang announced plans for a D.C. Momofuku and Milk Bar and made every yuppie politico in Washington pee themselves.
And then we found out that he likes pedicures, too, so, winning all around.
