Tinto (Almost) In New York Times

Jose Garces’ ambitious Basque-style small plates restaurant Tinto almost made it into the New York Times. Food critic Frank Bruni compiled his list of America’s top ten restaurants that aren’t in New York and Tinto just missed the list:

The 5 of the 15 restaurants that didn’t make my final cut were Ad Hoc in Yountville, Calif., Thomas Keller’s casual counterpoint to the French Laundry; the two-month-old Takashi, which serves a sort of Japanese-French fusion in Chicago; Tinto, with an array of artful tapas in Philadelphia; Lüke, the chef John Besh’s brasserie in New Orleans; and Comme Ça, the chef David Myers’s brasserie in West Hollywood, Calif.

That stinks, but we’d say that being shortlisted with Thomas Keller is a pretty good consolation prize.
