  1. looks like there’s not a unifying editorial standard for restaurant reviews @ MSP. Shocking. I’m sure Platt, as the food editor, will regin in Zimmern

    Also, I’m a long-time fan of Zimmern…but I wonder how close he’s veering to “Don’t you know who I am?” territory when he’s does these takedowns on local restaurants. Are they truly the horrifying experiences he describes, or is he just growing accustomed to the star treatment?
