Despite the controversy surrounding Adam Richman after he made some really terrible comments to strangers on Instagram, not everyone is dropping him: unlike the Travel Channel, NBC won't be canceling Richman's new show, Food Fighters.
John Tesar went on a scorched earth Twitter tirade against Dallas Morning News critic Leslie Brenner following a tepid review with a few bright spots, but still one that only scored him 3 out of 5 stars at Knife.
Standing in Midtown as a shining beacon of culinary perfection, at least in the eyes of the New York Times, is Eric Ripert‘s piscinery Le Bernardin. Four NYT reviews, each with a perfect four star rating, over the course of twenty-some-odd years crowns this restaurant the longest running holder of the Times‘ highest dining accolade in history. A close second is Daniel Boulud‘s Daniel, which has gathered itself fifteen stars over four reviews. But beyond these record holders lie a slew of chefs with some pretty deceptive ratings. Which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to tally up the Times star counts of this city’s most reviewed chefs to find out who should be crowned the most overrated and underrated culinary talents working today.
