Times Will Blow the Roof Off Tweeting Toques


We’ve 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: We’re just trying to drum up drama along the lines of that Governor Paterson exposé — who can blame us? Even lowly “barnacles” like to feel like Bob Woodward sometimes. But seriously, we’ve 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 there’ll 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 isn’t yet ready to share details. In any case, good to hear he’s still plugging away in NYC.
