Who knows exactly what to blame for the shift in speaking about cuisine from an elevated discourse and flaunted opinion to prison potty talk. Is it the blogosphere? Twitter? Maybe Ruth Bourdain? Could it be Red Medicine? All of which is to point out that Jonathan Gold calls Jordan Kahn “kind of a dick” on his Twitter feed today before pointing to his glowing review of the chef’s food and encouraging people “Go.” Kahn and his partner were recently called “punk restaurateurs” by Irene Virbila, and well, that one we kinda get, coming from her and all. But “kind of a dick?” At least Gold didn’t drop a ball joke, but it’s getting pretty mean out here on food street these days.
