pete-wells-tasting-menus-175.jpgNew York Times dining critic Pete Wells isn't so sure about those lengthy tasting menus everyone's so into these days: "The reservation is hard won, the night is exhausting, the food is cold, the interruptions are frequent.

Issue 2: 10-seat chef altars warping elitist press priorities." [NYT, Twitter]
