Oh, Yeah, Tim Cushman and Ken Oringer Get Along Just Fine Now


Yesterday we mentioned the scathing Boston magazine article that came out back in 2008, in which Ken Oringer (among others) criticized O Ya’s Tim Cushman, who won big at the James Beard awards earlier this week. Oringer got in touch to tell us that all’s fine and dandy now, though.

Oringer e-mailed us yesterday: ” I just wanted to clarify that the Boston mag article on Tim Cushman was 4 yrs ago. And on a side note, I actually petitioned to have him added to the north east ballot for the beard awards a couple of years back. I am so happy for Boston to have the award, and am keeping my fingers crossed for Jamie [Bissonnette, another finalist] for next year.”

So, no sushi showdowns in the near future. And as for Bissonnette’s future, well, we still want him to open a version of Little Serow.
