The Year Of Eating Dangerously: Best Food Post Of The Year

Posted By on Fri, Dec 28, 2007 at 9:00 AM

Because Chef David Chang's commentary so perfectly distills the ongoing restaurant showdown between front of the house (waiters) and back of the house (cooks), as illustrated by the prolific reaction to the Chronicle's front page story "Chefs' high hopes, low pay leave S.F. restaurants starved for help," this post from November (Straight From The Chef's Mouth: Waiters, Go Fuck Yourselves) stands out as the SFoodie post of the year. Plus, how often do I get to type the word 'fuck' and actually attribute it to somebody else? Just for fun here's Chang's comment again, originally from his interview as one of GQ's Men Of The Year:

“I know nobody expects to make money as a cook, but cooks have to live, and they can’t live on $300 to $400 a week. It makes me mad that cooks are treated like shit and servers say, ‘Well, you choose your profession.’ Whatever you guys say, you don’t work as hard as cooks, so go fuck yourselves."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
