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.
Recently, Men’s Health ran a contest to find the nine most manly restaurants in America, seeking the most testosterone-y joints in categories such as barbecue, pizza, steak, tacos, and “adventurous eating” (think Chris Cosentino). Though they were only trying to celebrate manhood, some media watchdogs claimed that they were labeling foods by gender. What is it, the New York Timesasked, that made all these foods manly, “when so many millions of women are fond of barbecue, pizza, steak, tacos, burgers, sandwiches and brew pubs”?
As a staff of women, we can tell you that the answer is, to be frank, quite simple. We may eat manly food, but it’s not because we’re eating food. We’re really eating our feelings.
So when the Times wondered whether a womanly magazine would front their own contest celebrating culinary womanliness, we at the Braiser put our ovaries together and came up with our own list of the nine womanliest restaurants in America, celebrating the yummy things that make up womanhood: marriage, friendship, shopping, and expressing our emotions. Have a night out at these restaurants with your gastronomic gal pals — as long as you’re not being visited by Auntie Flo! Are we right, ladies?
