EaterWire: Gussie's Delayed (Again), Falafel Truck Coming

THE FILLMORE—For the second week in a row, Gussie's Chicken & Waffles has been forced to delay its opening. The final inspection is Wednesday, meaning that if all goes to plan, Thursday would be the debut day. Stay tuned and look for updates later in the week. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION—The Weekly provides an updated list of the vendors for the upcoming Eat Real fest (sister event to the Street Food Fest that will take place the weekend before), tacking on few newcomers to the lineup, including Liba, an actual falafel truck that will soon hit the city's streets. Now decent falafel? That would be real street food. [SFW]

MEDIA—In a candid Q&A session, British food critic Jay Rayner—who may be better known to most as the British judge on Top Chef Masters—shares some interesting thoughts on a variety of topics like the changing media world, Michelin and the nature of his role as a critic. An excerpt: "We [critics] have to make the argument as to why we’re worth reading week in and week out. I often say that my job is not to sell restaurants; it’s to sell newspapers...There will be a convergence between professionals paid for media and the online media. The two will come a lot closer together." [Eats via EMD]
