Seven Hot Looks for Restaurant Critics

Gael Greene. Hot.
  • Gael Greene. Hot.

Earlier this week, Eater ran (or is it reran? I've seen this post before) a post listing hot looks for hot chefs. Faced with a magazine shoot? Hold a knife! Or a pig's head! SFoodie knows all too well that restaurant critics could use some tough love from Tyra Banks on our publicity shots. Ergo: seven hot looks for restaurant critics:

Look 1: The hat. Gael Greene has been rocking oversized hats for four decades now, and it has gotten her in bed with Elvis. The hat says: You can't see my piercing and highly recognizable eyes, but from my nose down, I'm hot. Right? Right.

Craig Claiborne.

2. The apron. If you're going to be a recognizable public figure, as the New York Times' Craig Claiborne surely was, at least try to look intellectual, with schoolmarm glasses pushed to half-mast. The apron is practical when you're rushing from crab feasts on the docks to vol-au-vents at Lutèce. Bonus: a tie. So Mad Men.

  • 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.'"
