Even before the Chimp took the concept of democracy and drove it into the global ditch, there was Zagat. And anyone halfway-sentient who did not realize you cannot assess quality by “voting” deserves to eat America’s favorite hot dogs at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with McLame. All of which is by way of wondering: How in the hell did the OAD “survey” ever get published? You put a questionnaire up online and really think the responses will come only from people who have actually eaten in the restaurants being judged, and not from flacks and shills and wannabes, not to mention the impressionable who tried Da Fiore on their honeymoons back when James Beard was a pup? Call the damn thing “100 Great Restaurants.” You can’t say they’re the “Best” unless you have put down your feces and stopped flinging long enough to try them all. Pretty bad when the press release challenges its own subject . . .
