Roy Choi is obviously full of fun, and his Reddit AMA only solidified it for us. Talk of stoner foods? Check. Best tacos in LA? Check. Hilarious quotes about tacos? Check. Even more, Choi laid out one more bombshell for his Reddit devotees about his new concept loco'l.
Leave it to Ruth Reichl to be candid yet humble about what it means to be a woman who, you know, cares just an iota about her weight and what not, and working in food. Namely that being a plus-size woman sets yourself up for a lot of hardship.
The San Francisco Michelin stars have been awarded to the best of the best restaurants, giving us all the more reason to bow down to the dining scene on the West Coast (and start planning a vacation out there). Even cooler? San Francisco is now home to two of the three most bad-ass lady chefs out there.
The Bloomberg news segment is supposed to cover exactly how ghastly rents are pushing out the top restaurants -- and top talent -- in New York City. Instead, Wylie Dufresne looks on uncomfortably as everyone else calls him a "star." What a class act.
Though the laws of restaurant physics state that a critic’s review can mean the life or death of a restaurant, sometimes those laws are broken. Sometimes a place remains open due to good service, rich clientele, or witch magic (we’re positive Bandolero exists because of Santería rituals). Sometimes sheer trendiness, celebrity love, and the perceived value that results can make a restaurant succeed. Hell, we’ll even admit to making a reservation now and then based on nothing but a restaurant’s recent buzz. Here, We’ve picked six restaurants that have notedly defied the odds, and the critics. What do they have that everyone else doesn’t? Probably money, a celebrity restaurateur, a former location that is beloved (or Santería).
