José Andrés Inches Dangerously Close to Twitter Spat With Piers Morgan

Young & Hungry isn't quite sure in what context that Larry King-replacement Piers Morgan said that chefs that hail from Knifecrime Island are the best in all the world, but it certainly irked José Andrés, Spain’s unofficial ambassador to D.C. The culinary star tweeted on Sunday: Mr. Pier Morgan is clueless when he says that […]

Ozersky to Five Guys Fans: You’re Mindless White Trash

File this under Fightin' Words. Burger-meister Josh Ozersky posted this on his Twitter account earlier today: Also: Five Guys is as bad a burger as there is. Their fans are basically the fast-food equivalents of Juggalos. I don't get it. For the uninitiated (like me, until five minutes ago when I Googled the term), Juggalos […]

Time Mazagine Says Food Tweets Are Boring

Let me see if I have this straight: Time writer Josh Ozersky, he of Wedding Gate, spends nearly 1,000 words (nearly one thousand words!) to tell us that food Tweets are boring.

Guess Where Tom Colicchio Ate Today?

Just minutes ago, the Top Chef honcho posted this question on his Twitter account: Guess where I am (I guess Tom doesn't believe in punctuation, but, hey, it's Twitter. I have to say, I'm slightly concerned that Colicchio's account is not verified, although it does say, "This is my real twitter page. All others are […]

The Habit of Change at Sticky Rice

The young waiter was efficient as hell, and he had to be. Sticky Rice was packed solid on a Tuesday night. Potential customers were lingering by the door, hoping to get a taste of the joint's B-grade sushi and tater tots. (Hey, here's an idea: Why don't you add a few more toasted sesame seeds to […]

Tweets of Interest: Morales Gone, Maybe Inox, Too?

Snow is not the only thing falling today. So are chefs and restaurants. Apparently. Two big notes from the Twitterverse: @tomsietsema: Every critic's nightmare: Chef leaves before review runs. In other words, Frank Morales is gone from Jackie's (& I have no column for 2/28). That was fast. @toddkliman: News Flash: Inox is closing, according […]
