In a Big Think video interview, Scott Conant tells how he sniffs out under-the-table scribblers: “We have pictures, we have detailed reports, we fax numbers back and forth with other restaurants — you know, this is the credit card they use…” His favorite critic? Mr. Anthony Bourdain. Nice dodge, Scotty! This is what Platt gets for granting him three stars at Scarpetta? In another segment, Conant plays the critic himself: "I’ll say this on camera — [Jean-Georges has] hands-down the best lunch in New York City, I think."
