Arrested Busy Chef Partner Has a History in Boston

The blogosphere is buzzing about the arrest of chef Dan Kaufman of Busy Chef, on Henry Street in the North Brooklyn Heights. Kaufman was arrested yesterday, accused of double-swiping customers' credit cards to the tune of $25,000 and other crimes. Charges against Kaufman include Grand Larceny, Attempted Grand Larceny, Possession of a Forged Instrument and Criminal Impersonation.

Whether Kaufman is found guilty or not (innocent until proven ...) he appears to have made a lot of enemies in his travels. Many commenters on the blog profess a hatred so intense it's almost sublime.

We can't print most of the comments. Okay, here's one we can print:

" I mean these are some pretty nasty things being said here , and maybe I'm just one of those gullible people who think people can change or make mistakes . But don't you think there just might be a time to let go ? how many possibly can read this site ?"

And another:

Dan has caused so much anger and resentment in Boston that I think people post here because they know Dan will read it."

Those are practically the only printable remarks. Here are a few links:

Get to put all the posts back up, PLEASE?????!!!!!!!


Seriously the most amazing, shocking, wonderfully stupid story I've sunk my teeth into in quite a while.

I happen to know him & have instinctually steered clear of him even though he's there every time I turn around...

Who knew?

Oh yeah, Boston.

Now I'll just send up one last little dark prayer ...that the entire "COC" racket melts away like the North Pole.
