Last Call: There Will Be No David Beckham-Gordon Ramsay Restaurant
Grub Street: Damn it, we had an entire post ready for fake Ramsay-Beckham restaurant names! “Bender Like Beckham!” … and that’s all we’ve got so far.
GQ: Serrated Wüsthofs and caramel gelatos! Microstream flashlights and fizzy drink bottles! Sodas at home that come out of machines! These are a few of Wylie Dufresne’s favorite things! (The hills are alive with the sound of slurping rye pasta.)
The Huffington Post: In a moment of “Come on, everyone knew that,” McDonald’s admitted that only 3% of its customers actually order salads. Naturally, they’re going to try boosting salad consumption…by advertising more burgers. Meat! It’s just like plants!

Food Republic: The photos from Marcus Samuelsson’s launch party for Yes, Chef! hosted by Converse leads us to believe that he’d do a pretty decent Harlem Shake — the real deal, not one of those lame suburban teenagers/Baauer dance videos. Also, we totally knew he loved Converse.
Creative Loafing Atlanta: Want to eat Hugh Acheson’s food, but only have $20 in your broke, broke pocket? Worry no more.
