More on this topic later, but I felt the need to share two quotes:
1. "Design matters in restaurants as much as food. Sometimes more. " 9/22 Review of Vandaag (which I just ate at and will do a full Review of the Review soon)
2. "Two additions to the city’s Indian fine-dining scene are a reminder that restaurants are about more than food." 4/1 - Crosstown Tour of India
At least he admits that he doesn't particularly care if the food is good. No, this doesn't make him right.
