Are Steakhouses the Last Bastion of Misogyny?
D Magazine food critic Eve Hill-Magnus just finished up this year’s edition of the best Dallas steakhouses. She got to enjoy some of the best steaks this city has to offer. She also got a side of microaggressions and sexism. Her article opens up the conversation about what excellent service means in the modern age. I for one hope the restaurants in this city take notice and change their ways.

David Chang on the Loss of Jonathan Gold
I enjoy the openness and honesty Dave Chang is showing on his podcast. His honesty about his struggle with depression in the wake of Anthony Bourdain’s suicide was beautiful and painful and so honorable. He brings this same spirit to his opening of this week’s podcast. In which he laments not mending fences before Jonathan Gold’s passing. It’s honest and heart-wrenching and beautiful. I hope you will give it a listen.
