"A restaurant is a fantasy, a kind of living theater in which diners are the most important members of the cast," Mr. LeRoy said in 1976. "It is one of the few creations that appeal to all of the senses, and one with which I can create my own world."
"Nobody can out-showbiz Warner in a restaurant, and probably nobody would want to, but in defining the edges so authoritatively, everybody took notice."
–Danny Meyer from the New York Times
"I was so blown away by his designs that I opened my first restaurant, Montrachet, with practically no design, saying, How could I compete with that?"
–Mr. Nieporent recalled.
