The Bib is here! food52 and Eater's first ever restaurant competition, where notable New Yorkers whittle down a list of New York's best new restaurants. Every day during the Bib, one of 15 chosen judges will explain why one restaurant, narrowed down from a giant list of '09 and '10 openings by our Bib Panel, defeated the other in a comparative tasting.
Yesterday, The Awl's Choire Sicha revealed his thoughts on M. Wells and Fatty 'Cue. And today, Brian Chase, a Brooklyn-based composer and the drummer in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, offers his take on Prime Meats and Maialino.
From his review:
What makes a great restaurant? I want it to blow my mind. I want to have continual moments when I'm transported by every bite, carried away from mundane distractions. At these times, when my mind is expanded, the world becomes a better place. As long as the meal brings us — living organic beings who share the same time and space — to a better place, then it's good with me.
