Sam Sifton's Star Distribution: A Look Back

New, 1 comment

Well, that's it folks. Sam Sifton is no longer the New York Times food critic. He'll probably do his Butterball hotline again this year, but other than that, he's done with the dining desk. Over the last two years, he reviewed 104 restaurants and awarded 151 stars — singletons, mostly. Here's a visual representation of how it all breaks down. Below, a look back at all his reviews, if you care to talk a walk down memory lane.
