A Williamsburg Meatball Smackdown; Canora on the Critics

ON THE CRITICS—Marco Canora's thoughts on food critics, as stated on Josh Ozersky's The Mr. Cutlets Show and as transcribed by Grub Street: "It’s hard to impress guys like Frank Bruni who eat out 345 nights a week, or Adam Platt. You have to hit these guys in the head with a two-by-four if you want them to be like, ‘Wow.’ It’s hard to wow that guy — it’s almost impossible to wow that guy. A lot of great restaurants get beat up and subsequently fail because of a tepid one-star review.” [Heritage Radio Network via GS]
