And in a year or two GQ will do a story on burgers from elsewhere and say they that city is the best. Its no different then any other "round-up," or top-ten (or 5, or 20 or whatever) that we tend to pick apart on a daily basis.

Let me know when he is going to write up the Burgers in St George Utah. I might read that one. I value GQ's opinions on Burgers as much as they admire my opinion of diet cola !

Good one, wj.

For those who don't know,



Alan Richman has dined in more unlikely locations and devoured more tasting menus than any other restaurant critic alive. He has reviewed restaurants in almost every Communist country (China, Vietnam, Cuba, East Germany) and has recklessly indulged his enduring passion for eight-course dinners (plus cheese). All of this attests to his herculean constitution, and to his dedication to food writing.

In Fork It Over, the eight-time winner of the James Beard Award retraces decades of culinary adventuring. In one episode, he reviews a Chicago restaurant owned and operated by Louis Farrakhan (not known to be a fan of Jewish restaurant critics) and completes the assignment by sneaking into services at the Nation of Islam mosque, where no whites are allowed. In Cuba, he defies government regulations by interviewing starving political dissidents, and then he rewards himself with a lobster lunch at the most expensive restaurant in Havana. He chiffonades his way to a failing grade at the Paul Bocuse school in Lyon, politely endures Sharon Stone's notions of fine dining, and explains why you can't get a good meal in Boston, spurred on by the reckless passion for food that made him "the only soldier he knows who gained weight while in Vietnam" and carried him from his neighborhood burger joint to Le Bernardin.

Alan Richman, once described as the "Indiana Jones of food writers," has won more major awards than any other food writer alive, including a National Magazine Award, eight James Beard Awards for restaurant reviewing, and two James Beard M.F.K. Fisher distinguished writing awards.

Does anyone have the link to the aforementioned article on Richman's blog? I'd love to read it.

none of that explains why NYC would have the best hamburgers though.

The best hamburgers are wherever you find them - sometimes in unexpected places, and , sadly, sometimes they are not so great in the places you traveled many miles to visit.

Cheers, John
