RH: So, Tony, what brings you to the Classic?
Marchese: I coproduce the Palm Desert Food & Wine Festival and I wanted to see what the folks are doing here in Aspen. This is a terrific event and I’ve learned a lot in the trade seminars and I’ve hung out with some pretty cool chefs and owners.
RH: A recurring theme here has been the decline of upscale and the rise of the casual sector. How has that affected your business?
