“I have very little desire to have a string of restaurants,” says Vivian Howard, who currently operates two restaurants in the small North Carolina city of Kinston and also stars in the PBS show about her work, A Chef’s Life. She quickly corrects herself.
What do the hipsters in Brooklyn eat when not dining in total silence? Artisanal, gluten-free, non-GMO gruel at a pop-up shop. Fucked in Park Slope discovers the Brooklyn Porridge Co. — whose name sounds like it comes straight from the Brooklyn Brooklyn Company Company business idea generator — describes itself as specializing in "porridge made from a variety of ancient, global, and gluten-free grains." A bowl of porridge (with two free toppings) starts at seven dollars. Groovy.
This is one of the first things chef Justin Yu says when asked to explain his plans for Theodore Rex, his surprising new restaurant project taking shape in Houston. From the outside looking in, Yu’s decision to close his hit tasting menu destination Oxheart didn’t make sense. The restaurant earned him a James Beard Award, a place on Eater’s national 38, and honors from both Food & Wine and Bon Appetit, a five-year stretch any chef would dream of having. But for Yu, the time had come.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
