Okay, I'll let that one go, yet he wears them with suits, too...
That is a negative, to say the least.
Even this salmon is saying, "Mario, give the Crocs a rest." So when I read this about Mario this morning-
CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The king and queen of Spain got a dash of profanity from celebrity chef Mario Batali at a $1,000-a-plate dinner during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. At a Thursday dinner honoring Spain's growing international culinary presence, Batali dropped some royally naughty words as he hosted the event in the presence of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia.
Batali dropped the f-bomb again while introducing chef Jose Andres, whose Los Angeles restaurant, The Bazaar, has been heralded by critics. He finished by grabbing Andres' bottom.
Those seated near the royal couple said the queen blanched. Gloria Estefan chortled. And Andres kept his cool.
Well, I love it when royalty blanches, though that was kind of crass. I'm also guessing from the f-bombs and groping, that it had a lot more to do with the wine of Spain, than the food.
The final verdict? Mario, keep doing what you're doing, keep your hands to yourself and please, lose the Crocs.
