2008_11_acurio.jpgIn a profile that sees Portfolio declare Gaston Acurio "the next superchef," we also learn the following bits of wisdom: the La Mar overlord has NYC and Vegas in his sights for La Mar's second and third American branches, he rocks the black leather jackets, he is often accompanied by two "massive" bodyguards, he estimates that he has 1500 employees, and his revenues are expected to nearly double from $65 million in 2007 to $120 million in 2008. Heavens. [Portfolio, photo]
