To anyone who pays attention to things that are written about food (credible things - not riff-raff you read here), Ruth Reichl needs no introduction. She is one of the most well respected food journalists and authors of recent times, and is revered by many as a national treasure. Nobody is better when it comes to turning what we eat into words.

"Say what you will, it’s still the best steak in the city. I can’t resist a place whose waiters have been here forever. I like the sawdust on the floor. I even like the fact that steak’s the only good thing on the menu.”
"It’s just too loud and too crowded to let you be lonely. And the food is – well everyone knows what the food is. Fabulous."
“Don’t much know Korean food? This is a great place to start. Get in line, grab a tray, and snake your way past just about every Korean dish you’ve ever imagined. You pay by the pound – and it’s never very much.”
“I really really miss my Gourmet expense account. But never more so than when I’m wishing that I could go to Sushi Zen, sit down at the counter and say, ‘Feed me please.’”
“It may be the only waterside restaurant that doesn’t cost a fortune. And the charcoal-grilled burgers are pretty good.”
