Rank #1: David Chang: "Almost everything we've done has been a failure from the get-go"

Podcast cover
Read more

David Chang is the powerhouse behind the global Momofuku restaurant empire, which as Helen succinctly puts it at the beginning of this week’s episode, has been largely responsible for “The Way We Eat Now” ever since its New York City beginnings in 2004. In Chang’s chat with Helen and Greg, he reveals how he came to terms with the importance of Yelp, why he’s no longer interested in going after awards, and which major restaurant critic can just go f*ck himself.

Rank #3: Best Of: Anthony Bourdain

Podcast cover
Read more

Don't ask Anthony Bourdain to limit himself to other people's assumptions. It's been sixteen years since Kitchen Confidential blew up the food world; in the time since, he's built a career as a full-time expectation-upending maverick. Bourdain's books, television shows — and his not insignificant renegade charisma — have catapulted him into the kind of badass cross-genre celebrity that results in bros geeking out over him (though he doesn’t love that) and fans accosting him in the bathroom (he doesn’t totally love that either). Bourdain swung by the Eater Upsell studios to talk about his brand new cookbook, Instagram FOMO, and the life-altering magic of fatherhood. (Original air date: October 23, 2016)

Going to popular, hyped-up restaurants is both an obsession and an occupational hazard for editors at Eater. So we've all had our fair share of lines, multi-hour waits, and shut outs.

Plus, we discuss some of the biggest food news stories of the week, from a scourge of seagulls on the Jersey Coast, to the most recent shady move from a major food delivery service and more.

Rank #14: J. Kenji López-Alt and The Cult of The Food Lab

Podcast cover

For anyone who’s ever asked, “Why?” in the kitchen, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt is your man. After getting his start in restaurant and test kitchens in Boston, Kenji created The Food Lab, a column on Serious Eats dedicated to lassoing the laws of science and riding them to home cooking success every time. In the subsequent six years, the “Kenji method” has blown up, but despite being a cult phenomenon and bestselling cookbook author, Kenji himself is just about as cool and down to earth as you can get. He stopped by the Eater Upsell studios to talk meatloaf, space travel, and how to secretly take a professional phone call from the bathtub.

Rank #18: Inside the Weird World of Restaurant Critics

Podcast cover
Read more

On its surface, restaurant criticism sounds like a pretty great gig. But dining out on the company dime, trying all the best new restaurants and getting paid to eat dinner out isn’t all that glamorous when you peak behind the curtain. We called in two critics, Bon Appétit Deputy Editor Julia Kramer, who’s responsible for the magazine’s annual Hot 10 list, and our own Ryan Sutton, who covers New York, to tell us about the making of a restaurant review and the things that make their line of work uniquely strange. We also get into the biggest food stories of the week, from Popeye’s wildly popular new sandwich, to a beloved Brooklyn pizza joint getting nailed for tax evasion and a Cheeto-fueled conspiracy theory surrounding a certain tech giant.

Stories:

• Popeye’s vs. Everyone Else

• Di Fara Shuttered for Tax Evasion

• Does Jeff Bezos Know How to Eat Cheetos?
