New York Mag Food Critic Goes Public on Cover, No One Knows What To Think Anymore [Updated]


Adam Platt at New York magazine is just the latest restaurant critic to go mainstream. After all, Pete Wells locked down his reputation by destroying Guy Fieri, and Jay Rayner made it to Buzzfeed-famous, so we know how this story goes. And now Platt is making the biggest possible splash in abandoning his anonymity for fame — by getting mugged on the cover.

Naturally, New York mag’s Twitter announcement of the cover made for some awesome commentary from New York food lovers and critics alike. But we think Wells wins the Twitter buzz — after all, why does Platt look so freaking miserable anyways?

Winning, Wells.

UPDATE: Oh no wait, Platt won the Twitter conversation after all.
