In Defense of Brooklyn Food

Good day for rants about Brooklyn – here is Voice restaurant critic Bob Sietsema responding to Brooklyn restaurant haters Cuozzo, Steingarten and Sheraton:

I suspect Brooklyn’s detractors are simply too lazy to find a subway and board it, their tongues so accustomed to the familiar and prosaic that they don’t want to taste anything else. Their wits so dimmed by self-esteem that they’re unwilling to admit that the culinary world as they know it – a world of French cuisine, heavy silverware, pinkies in the air, and $500 tabs – hardly exists anymore as far as most of us are concerned.
