Sifton’s Last Review

SS is going to crown Le Bernardin the best restaurant in New York, guaranteeing himself a permanent seat at the big boys’ food table. Cookbook 2013? Aspen F&W 2014? Perhaps. Sifton’ll soon be busy with the new job, but at least he won’t ever have to waste time picking up the check again.  Of course, he could add the Thomas Keller empire to his free eats passport–Boulud, Meyer, Batali, Colicchio, etc.–with a Per Se review instead, but that would mean he had completely sold out…Oh.

    Sifton is the first Times critic to have grown up eating in restaurants as fancy as those he now reviews. And he’s still wearing the little boy’s night out uniform of blue blazer and khakis. And like a boy, he’s still not paying for dinner! Pretty soon it’s going to be Peter Pan neverland time, since from now on he’s about as likely to whip out a Mastercard as Gael Greene.

    So it was Per Se. How many people can name the current chef? I’m sure PS is delightful, but it’s been a while since anyone mentioned a new dish coming out of there. It seems to me that a top place in NYC should be changing the food world, not just conserving it.

    I was wrong; so was Sifton.
