Scott Simpson: chef, burger man, creative genius, dead at 38

Chef Scott Simpson died early this week. My heart goes out to those closest to him, and to the many fans — myself among them — who knew Scotty as the creative genius behind the recently relocated Lunchbox Laboratory, the short-lived restaurant Fork and the original Blue Onion Bistro. More later.

UPDATE: 3/30/11 11:50 p.m. Read Scott’s obituary, here.
