Food blogger Josh Ozersky writes a piece for Time.com today praising the old-fashioned restaurant critic.
Back in July, I interviewed Mr. Ozersky and asked if he had any interest in being an old-fashioned restaurant critic.
“The Times critic can’t go on TV!” he said. “What would you do with that power? You can’t go to the restaurants you like, you can’t shmooze with the chefs and writers you like. You can’t go on Top Chef!”
“As far as I’m concerned, you have to be on television,” he continued. “You can win the National Book Award and you can write on the front page of The Times every day, and you’re still not as famous as some busty tramp on Tough Love on VH1.”
