This is part two of our interview with Lester Gonzalez, chef at Scottdale's Cowboy Ciao. If you missed the first part of the interview, in which Gonzalez talked about the restaurant's new location at Sky Harbor Airport and his gave his thoughts about Gio Osso of Virtu, you can read it here. Today, he talks about the restaurant's Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year and the one place he would want to eat in the world -- and it's not anywhere you'd be likely to guess.
