Michael Bauer discusses celebrity chefdom and Aussie fare in reviewing South Food + Wine Bar, where he has hope that Luke Mangan can succeed in the northern hemisphere: "It's an unusually high-powered team for a casual 60-seat restaurant ... Still, Mangan and his partners are taking a chance by opening a restaurant in a town that has a provincial attitude toward celebrity chefs. What may ensure the success of South is that the cooking is interesting, and [partners Anna] Weinberg and [Liz] O'Connell are experienced in various aspects of the business." [Chron]
