"Yelp drives the chefs crazy" - John Favreau
Catherine Hanly of the most estimable “Hot Dinners” blog tells us that when asked about how chefs view critics, John Favreau, director of the movie “Chef” said:
“I think the frustration they’re railing against isn’t critics – it’s really the internet/blogosphere – the Yelp people who write about the restaurants. That drives the chefs crazy. And then they write them back. I mean I know I’m a public figure. Chefs don’t know and then they write the kind of things that get picked up by food blogs and these wars begin.”
