Mariani on the Beards

New, 1 comment

Perhaps proving again why he was nominated for a Golden Clog, John Mariani voices his opinion on the '08 Beard Awards, which he thinks were judicious. Well, mostly: "... the obvious biases continue, which is to say that those restaurants and chefs who get the most media attention handily win the award." On Achatz: "Has his not-very-long career actually 'set national industry standards?' I don't think so." On the Slanted Door's nom: "beloved in San Francisco but having had no impact on the rest of American gastronomy or even California cuisine." [Virtual Gourmet]
