Oh boy. Eater's third annual Shitshow Week, a festive time to focus on the great follies of the restaurant world, starts this very moment. Why focus on shitshows? Because as every diner knows, this city offers some of the best cuisine in the world, served by some of the best chefs in the world, to some of the best looking people in the world. Throw in some great design, knockout cocktails, a Shake Shack or four, and you have culinary nirvana. Which makes the speed bumps, the comedy of errors dining situations, the botch jobs, the clusterfucks, the total off the rails shitshows that much more intolerable. It's time to celebrate these monstrosities.
Every day this week, we'll throw up a review of a different potential shitshow, deathwatch a restaurant or two, name the members of our new Shitshow All-Star Team, and throw in some other fun surprises. Again we're always looking for Deathwatch candidates, worst outdoor seating nods, and submissions to the Eater Complaints Dept. Send those to the tipline. Or just settle in with some snacks and have some fun.
