UNDER THE INFLUENCE 

UNDER THE INFLUENCE

It seems that Ben Smith, the chef/owner of Midtown's always-superb Pacific Rim bistro Tsunami, finds inspiration for his culinary masterpieces in some unlikely places. In a recent edition of the industry mag Restaurants and Institutions, Smith claims to be influenced by a local "found object" artist, whose constructions remind him of food and has been working on a special dessert since he heard his son announce, "I want chocolate dumplings." If we're lucky, the talented but easily influenced chef will never see a dog go near the litter box.
