New York is now the gastronomic capital of the world, haute cuisine is too expensive and makes no profit, sniffing at El Bulli, and other fun from the always entertaining John Mariani.
Dispenses rice every time there is news about GM rice, and invites people over to eat it when it's full and done...ehh
While flash photography in a restaurant can be annoying, some of the elitist comments remind what I don't miss about New York.
Among other news, of restaurants previously mentioned on Just Hungry, Le Beurehiesel has lost one star since the son has taken over from papa as chef, and Marc Meneau of L'Esperance is declaring bankrupcy (French, Le Figaro)
More news about Marc Meneau's difficulties (French, Le Figaro). Somehow, this doesn't surprise me, if one can judge a restaurant from just one visit...it was really good but there was not the air of comfortable success one senses at other restaurants.
