The Quotable Pete Wells

2012_pete_wells_critic_job_1234.jpgPete Wells shares his thoughts on being a restaurant critic: "In a way, the civilians are often more intelligent than the critic...Because they know what to do when they walk into a restaurant, and we have to be sort of intentional idiots--'Oh, I'm going to order this thing...'--even though nobody in his right mind has ordered it in 20 years!"
