In a chat about the San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants listicle, blogger, critic, and Next Iron Chef judge Simon Majumdar said some unkind things about his new hometown, Los Angeles, explaining why more LA restaurants weren't on the list: "...based on my three years of visiting and one year-plus of living here, if I was asked to call L.A. a world-class eating city, I could not, hand on heart do so... [T]here is little depth of excellence and much of the dining scene seems to be driven by what I call "The hype and the herd." The food on the whole rarely lives up to the Twitter-driven hyperbole."
