"...the culinary equivalent of a papal blessing..."
Anyone remember the name of the LES restaurant featured in TONY this week as "just opened"? The review included the above subject line, referring to Wylie having dined there. If so, could you post? Thx.
Interestingly, the same phrase was used in ("borrow from"?) a 1999 Wall Street Journal article/review...
"Now, the 37-year-old Mr. Phan is winning best-new-chef awards and receiving visits from top officials of the James Beard Foundation, the culinary equivalent of a papal blessing. "
