Sam Sifton of New York Times Eats Dallas

I’m happy to report that some newspapers still have a budget! Last week, at the request of their sports department, the New York Times sent restaurant critic Sam Sifton to advance the local food scene. He did a fairly good job of flushing out a few out-of-the-way places. I was happy to read that Sifton connected with BBQ Snob, Daniel Vaughn. Here is Sifton’s piece. And his follow-up blog post. I have left a link to SideDish on the NYT blog, but doubt it will get past moderators. So read it and leave comments. I’m going to opening night party for the media tonight. I will direct all of them to this link. So, bundle up and let’s send them to taste the real Dallas/Fort Worth.

    Nancy, I glanced at the comment page on NYT blog and looks like your comment went through.

    I read the piece and I agree with most of it, though I did tweeted to him that he could’ve done better on the taco department. Consulting the taco and burger tour writeups on the various blogs would have been helpful to narrow the field.

    It’s kind of ironic that Sam Sifton would welcome (and give credit to) BBQ Snob’s expertise, while the Morning News’ critic took the opposite approach.

    Good point Kirk! The more I think about her BBQ list the madder I get. I quit reading Eats. Nothing interesting on it.

    Nancy I just read Siftons story. He should thank you for the link. He got lots of good info from Dallas people through this link.
