Laurent Manrique Flirting With Becoming Bicoastal

In the last year or so, Laurent Manrique has crossed off his name at Aqua, Urban Tavern and Fifth Floor, leaving Cafe de la Presse as the only restaurant that he's technically attached to nowadays. But that might be changing soon enough. While there have been plenty of rumors that Manrique might be signing on to a hotel project somewhere in SF, former Elvis lover Gael Greene hears that Marin's most famous Buddhist chef is currently considering a consulting gig at New York City's Country. If he does go for it, he would "function as creative consultant and become bi-coastal." But—honest question—more often than not, how well do long-distance consulting gigs really turn out?
