One of my faithful e-correspondents beat the hometown paper to a correction on the obit that identified one of the most identifiable restaurateurs in town as a mere chef. But the bigger issue was with the obit itself. Absolutely not to diss the dead, but the name was not exactly household and the achievement not exactly original. If the chain were in any other neighborhood (aside from Montclair, where, as the saying goes, “the elite retreat”), would it be worth a mention? At least the misidentified was what he always is: gracious.
