Le Bernadin Marks 25 Years On Top; Chef Eric Ripert Says NYC Deserves Some Credit

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Manhattan restaurant Le Bernadin has had a four-star rating from the New York Times for the past 25 years.

Chef Eric Ripert, who was born in France, said New York City itself deserves some of the credit for this success.

"When you have people dedicated to perfection and when you are motivated like I am, and I think in New York it's hard not to be motivated, because we are always inspired by what's going on everywhere," Ripert told WCBS 880's Jane Tillman Irving. "It's a very dynamic city."
