the man in the rockefeller suit
The story of Clark Rockefeller is a stranger-than-fiction twist on the classic American success story of the self-made man- because Clark Rockefeller was totally made up. The career con man who convincingly passed himself off as a Rockefeller was born in a small village in Germany. At seventeen, obsessed with getting to America, he flew into the country on dubious student visa documents and his journey of deception began.
Over the next thirty years, boldly assuming a series of false identities, he moved up the social ladder through exclusive enclaves on both coasts-culminating in a stunning twelve-year marriage to a rising star businesswoman with a Harvard MBA who believed she’d wed a Rockefeller.
The impostor charmed his way into exclusive clubs and financial institutions-working on Wall Street, showing off an extraordinary art collection-until his marriage ended and he was arrested for kidnapping his daughter, which exposed his past of astounding deceptions as well as a connection to the bizarre disappearance of a California couple in the mid-1980s.
The story of The Man in the Rockefeller Suit is a probing and cinematic exploration of an audacious impostor-and a man determined to live the American dream by any means necessary.

So when you come off the type of weekend that I have had, it’s hard to slow down and adjust to real life. And then there is a little voice in your head that says, “This is YOUR real life!” Sometimes it takes a minute to take it all in because after a BIG event is done, you get a chance to take a deep breath, get 3-4 hours of sleep…and then you are back at it for your clients. I haven’t had time to do a recap with the team, so that we can make the next one better. I really need to clarify what I am referring. This is my recap and #thankyou post for the #BahamasMeetsNOLA popup restaurant experience.
When we started working on this event, I had about 120 dishes ready to go. Since I knew that was not an option, I had to get it down to 10-12 courses. Btw, that IS NOT an easy task. You need REAL support. You need a main crew that can give insight on what works with the theme and what doesn’t work. That idea may sound like a #nobrainer. but it’s hard to say no to a dish that tastes really good. The next thing you need is a support crew that shows up on time to execute the vision with NO QUESTIONS asked. That’s even harder because EVERY cook has questions.
I appreciate the number of people that give me help in trying to stay on point. For those that don’t what I mean, let me explain. I CONSTANTLY CHANGE WHAT I FEEL LIKE COOKING. There were 6 different versions of the menu before we LOCKED it. After that, I still changed 2 courses. This is why I love my ENTIRE staff. If you need further clarity…here it is.
Once I have the theme, it is Jada’s responsibility to work on the design of the space. Btw, she doesn’t even have confirmation of the location at this point. Each of my #core chefs will have at least 2 dishes approved for the menu and they are happy. Within days most of their dishes will disappear. They adjust and focus. That’s why my team is the best. We worked through this menu with SO many changes and it wasn’t easy. I still listen to fans of the #popup and I want to make them happy. It’s A LOT to manage and streamline. We get a core menu and you start getting a preview. We give the links to purchase tickets and “away we go!”
