Is this how you roll in Flavor Town?

14 Jan

Thank you, Pete Wells, for writing one of my very favorite restaurant reviews of all time (of Guy Fieri’s Times Square restaurant). There was a wonderful article in Slate.com this week about Wells as a populist hero standing up for the little guy: “Why shouldn’t a food critic care whether middle-class out-of-towners enjoy themselves?” Excellent restaurants are destination sites for many, including myself, and food tourism is one of the great pleasures of my life. I had my most delightful meal ever at The Bazaar, which, in the swank Beverly Hills, I was afraid might be an intimidatingly snobbish establishment. It was not. It was lovely. Get there if you can. This meal was a big deal for us, and very expensive, and we were there after my husband had been a contestant on Jeopardy! (and won a game!). It was such a fun day being on the Sony studio lot and watching my brilliant husband tear it up, and our meal at the Bazaar was so special and fun and perfect. We were obviously from out of town, but we were treated beautifully. The food was perfect, with the philly cheese steak with “air bread” being maybe the best thing I’ve ever eaten. Yay Pete Wells! I heart you.
