MAD Monday: More Talks About Critics and Food

Personal blogs, online publications and crowd-sourced sites like Yelp are but a few of the channels that have fundamentally altered a conversation that used to be dominated by the print restaurant critic. For the first MAD Monday of 2014, chefs Bo Bech and Matt Orlando, feature writer Lisa Abend, and print critic Søren Frank discussed this phenomenon and explored all the questions that go with it: Who do we turn to for accurate and well-written assessments of restaurants? How much do restaurants and consumers care about print criticism? What standards, if any, should those who voice their opinions be held to? And how do chefs and writers navigate this new landscape?
