NY Press - eh. It was great in the days of Russ Smith, save for the fact that he's the one responsible for foisting that tool Sam Sifton on the NY food world - he hired Sifton in 1990 to write the restaurant reviews for the paper, and they had a huge falling out when Sammo left to work for Tina Brown. I still remember Russ' diatribe in the paper about how when Sifton was sick in his "shitty little Lower East Side hellhole" (bet he don't live there any more), Smith went over and took care of him, and how betrayed he felt by Sifton's departure for Tina's loving embrace. But now the paper seems more for frat boys, altho the Best of issue is usually worth a read.
