MISSING INGREDIENT, THE: WHAT IS THE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS?

THE MISSING INGREDIENT REVIEWED

“The Missing Ingredient” is a fascinating look at modern business and food culture. As Gino’s has closed, many long staying eateries see the opportunity to strike. Charles Devigne just wanted to borrow from a restaurant that inspired him, so that he could save Pescatore. His restaurant isn’t bad and he’s not a villain by any stretch of the imagination. All he did was try to celebrate the history of NYC dining.

The film shows the dangers of confusing one’s legacy with another’s success. If that wasn’t enough, the restaurant owner in question remains ignorant of the problems that he is facing. At times, you want to crawl into the screen and slap the guy. But, the efforts are understandable and I admire the desire to improve. While the material isn’t for everyone, I completely recommend checking it out.
