Tweet for Tat in the Restaurant World

February 23, 2010

I saw this New York Times story on chefs fighting through Twitter the other day, and didn’t get a chance to post it until now unfortunately (blogger FAIL).

But as a sometimes-avid Tweeter myself, I thought it was an interesting story on how technology is changing the restaurant industry. This quote sums it up best:

“Other chefs see an opportunity for control. ‘Before the Web and Twitter, restaurants were completely controlled by the press, and chefs and restaurants just had to sit back and take it,’ said Kristine Lefebvre, wife of the Los Angeles chef Ludovic Lefebvre, who tweets frequently as @FrenchChefWife. ‘Now we have a voice.'”

Does that mean that the role of the restaurant critic is diminishing? Hmm … food for thought.
