Times Will Blow the Roof Off Tweeting Toques


Weve just learned that Julie Moskin of the Times is working on a story about tweeting chefs that is sure to bring down many food-industry players. Ha, okay, fine: Were just trying to drum up drama along the lines of that Governor Paterson expos who can blame us? Even lowly barnacles like to feel like Bob Woodward sometimes. But seriously, weve heard that both Joe Dobias and Ryan Skeen have been interviewed about the Twitter flare-ups that Grub Street spotted back in November. And who knows, maybe therell be mention of Marcus Samuelsson announcing his new restaurant via Twitter. This should be good! As for Skeen, he tells us that he is indeed working on something new, but isnt yet ready to share details. In any case, good to hear hes still plugging away in NYC.
