Last week, Eater picked up our post about Ryan Skeen’s worrisome tweets (“[G]et me the fuck out of NYC I cant [sic] do it anymore,” the Allen & Delancey chef wrote) and commented, “As far as Rye-Rye’s reputation is concerned, this combined with his flightiness (this is his fourth gig in two years) isn’t the best for resume building.” Skeen now shoots back on Twitter: “Thank you! Eater, I have found my way. I should cook for my resume!! Now it is all clear to me, I think I got my groove back. Thank [you] Amanda.” And then: “I love NYC and the food I should just shut up and cook, until I get fired at least, then its [sic] off to Journalism school.” Touché!
Joe Dobias is also firing back at the blogosphere after we recapped the episode of Chopped in which he appeared: “JoeDoe is on fucking fire! BooHoo Bloggers” and “Who gives a shit about fame when [you] make kickass food, serve it the way [you] want (and to who [you] want), and make a killing doing it! NYC Rocks!” That said, Dobias isn’t above making some bloggeresque observations himself: “Ken [F]riedman is resto poisin [sic]! A forager for a bar that serves burgers? Gimme a break nym for proporting [sic] the lies!”
