Eric Ripert on Yelp

ericripertsm.jpgObserver critic Scott Reitz chatted with New York chef/total dreamboat Eric Ripert about Hurricane Sandy, roasting Anthony Bourdain, and how to keep staff loyal. When asked about the relevance of food critics in the era of Yelp, Ripert had this to say: "The food critic is definitely a reference because Yelp is basically full of people complaining. We have to take into consideration some of the comments, but very often it's not even rational what they say." [City of Ate]
