The Quotable Pete Wells

Pete Wells on how he got into the food writing game: "For some reason, editors kept asking me to write about restaurants. I never said no to work except once, when Adam Rapoport, who's now the editor of Bon Appétit, asked me to eat brunch at all the restaurants around town that had the longest lines to see if the wait was worth it. I doubted that I would learn very much by taking the assignment, since I hate waiting in lines and don't like restaurant brunches very much, either." [NYT]
