From the post:

On his personal blog,  “Todd Richards, Culinary Artist,” the chef writes: “People ask me all  the time what the road map is to becoming a successful chef. The fame,  the fortune, the bright lights. I can tell you honestly there is one  only road map that I have followed. It was taught to me by Chef Eddie  over at The Blue Ribbon Grill in Tucker when I didn’t know a damn thing  about cooking: Cook with great cooks. Hire a great staff. Listen to  your guest. Taste everything. People eat with their eyes and nose first.  Stay true to the concept. Cook everyday like there is no tomorrow.”
