Michel Richard, who died Aug. 13 at age 68 from complications of a stroke, helped establish Washington, D.C., as a major dining city when he opened the restaurant Citronelle in 1994. But it was Richard's Los Angeles restaurant Citrus, opened in 1987, that first brought him acclaim in the U.S., beyond the pastry shops he'd set up after leaving France.
IF you are a native New Yorker, steak is in your blood. Long before there were egg creams or Coney Island hot dogs, there were beefsteaks. The beefsteak was not a food, it was an event. This New York institution began, as far as anyone knows, around the middle of the last century.
A Slow-Food Voice in a Fast-Food Nation BY RUTH REICHL, SEATTLE WEEKLY, 4/14/10 We asked author and critic Ruth Reichl to share her thoughts on Angelo Pellegrini, for whom the Pellegrini Award is named. When I was in college in the mid-'60s, I spent my spare time in a thrift shop called Treasure Mart, looking for old cookbooks.
When the man at border control asks why I've come to Frankfurt I give him my standard answer: "I'm here to eat." This is usually good for a few restaurant recommendations; now it gets only a laugh. "Hey," the officer shouts to his colleague in the next booth, "she's here to eat!"
Celebrities go next door to TriBeCa Grill. Big spenders vie for tables up the street at Nobu. The limousines block traffic while the people spill outdoors to sip cocktails and wait for tables, blocking the sidewalk. Sometimes they wander down to Zeppole, just to see what is going on.
You can't be a restaurant critic," M.F.K Fisher said to me 21 years ago, "unless you are one of those ambitious sorts, willing to walk on your grandmother's grave." I nodded meekly and agreed. It was the early 70's. In Berkeley, where I lived, the view was extreme: food, like so many things, had become intensely political.
Best of all, it is almost time to leave. Unlike other restaurants that charge these sorts of prices, the Box Tree does not shower you with little gifts to make you linger at the table. No petits fours, no chocolates.
''IN my opinion, Chinese chefs are much more skilled than French chefs,'' Ching Yun Pu said. And then he added, ''Although we do not brag the way French chefs do.'' It was 1981, and Mr. Pu, a master chef trained in pre-revolutionary China, was working in a restaurant in San Francisco's Chinatown.
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
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".
