Best of the week's food press

The Cynthia's fracas has been covered everywhere, but if you want to see what all the fuss is about, the L.A. Weekly tried to get to the bottom of the inflammatory email going around town. In a nutshell, there's probably better places to take your business than Cynthia's on Third St.

J. Gold does a nice round-up of Thai food, but I'm still on the lookout for a really reliable place in Thai Town with a more ambitious menu than Sapp, for example.

Excellent dim sum article in the L.A. Times. Anyone want to check out New Concept?

And of course, the item that has L.A.'s gastronomes even more excited than Cynthia's rudeness, the news that Nancy Silverton will partner with Mario Batali in an L.A. Italian restaurant featuring his father's famous salumi. Read about it in David Shaw's interview.

i've noticed that chowhound has been steadfastly deleting any post regarding the Cynthia's incident. what's going on??

Pat Saperstein said...

I think Chowhound prefers to focus on the food, rather than the ownership. They don't really like extremely negative posts because it's hard to verify how true they are or who was right. They need to be pretty restrictive so people don't think they can just air all their grievances there.

Anonymous said...

Even more reason for the LATimes to get a gossip column. Chowhound also didn't want to deal with Mark Peel soloing at Camanile and spreading his own brand of cheer around the place. Face it, Nancy was the only pleasant face ever sen in there.

re New Concept, if you are putting together a sampling posse, I'm game (if you include folks you dont' know that is).

Is there a dim sum posse that I could join in on? In San Francisco we had a monthly Chinese Dumpling Gang meeting...

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Well, I've enjoyed my visit to Best of the week's food press, but I'm not sure it's what I was looking for. I was actually searching for articles on how to cook lobster - these search engines are weird! Just thought I'd say hello while I'm here :0)

I think I've found a search engine with a sense of humor - I was actually looking for articles on how to cook rice, and here I am on a site called Best of the week's food press. There's probably an electronic explanation for this and I have enjoyed the experience, so no harm done. Have a nice day P Saperstein - if that's your real name :0)
