Welcome Grub Street
September started slowly, now it's speeding by and Grub Street has hit the cyber world. I had hoped to send you there on opening day, but better late than never. Take some time to check out New York Magazine's new food blog Grub Street edited by Josh Ozersky the infamous Mr. Cutlets.
Why another food Blog? I'll let the editors of Grub Street answer that for themselves....
"Grub Street was an eighteenth-century London avenue populated by hungry writers. Those long-dead litterateurs never rested, and neither will New York Magazine's food blog. Grub Street will be updated hourly, covering everything from the cult street vendor, nameless yet venerated, to the latest temple of gastronomy, awash in renown. You'll find out which in-demand tables are available each night, where you might discover an overlooked lunch spot, what's worth reading elsewhere on the Web, and what Matthew Barney orders at Balthazar.
There will be special contributions from the magazine's food critics Â Adam Platt, Rob Patronite, and Robin Raisfeld. But Grub Street's editor is Josh Ozersky. Formerly the restaurant critic for Newsday, Josh has also written about food and culture in New York, the Times, and Details. He's also, as "Mr. Cutlets," the author of Meat Me in Manhattan: A Carnivore's Guide to New York and the forthcoming Hamburgers: A Cultural History. He lives in Brooklyn, where he bought an apartment so he could be closer to DiFara's Pizza."Grub Street is off to a great start and I wish them much success.
