@Clarence Rosario this is an excellent point. A massive and regrettable oversight on my part.

On When Food Critics Narc Out Waiters

@deepomega I doubled down on hedgey adverbs there for a reason. I get what you're saying, but there's no need for hyperbole like "in what possible world…". That is all!

On When Food Critics Narc Out Waiters

@petejayhawk Hey, I'm responsible for the blog post in question, and I think you bring up a great point. However, I do think there's a minor but important distinction here, which is that a restaurant review is ostensibly mainly about the food. The BOH comes to work knowing that their ass/reputation hangs in the balance with a review. I just think it's weird that FOH workers can be put on the record for slips of the tongue just because they happen to come between the chef and the critic, if that makes sense?

But you're right. It's ultimately of little consequence. I just thought it was interesting.

On Eggs, In Order

Basted is notably absent. Or are we conflating Sunny Side Up with Basted? Also: "Fried" is troubling in that it encompasses the whole spectrum from Over Easy (delicious) to Over Hard (unacceptable).

Looks like this will be another seriously controversial Awl list. I respect your courage.
