The Other Critics: Gingrass Explosion

• Michael Bauer heads north to Yountville, where he gives Brix two and a half stars. Now operating under chef Anne Gingrass-Paik, the restaurant scored only half a star for food on Bauer’s last visit, when the current chef’s ex husband David Gingrass had the reins. [SF Chronicle]

• David Gingrass makes another appearance in Paul Reidinger’s write-up of his current restaurant, TWO. Reidinger finds himself relieved that the move to simplify and attract a younger crowd at the former Hawthorn Lane worked out so well. [SFBG]

• L.E. Leone likes kids, hates mayonnaise, has some affection for Germany, and loves the hell out of Phat Philly cheese steaks. [SFBG]

• Meredith Brody takes a crack at Midi, which doesn’t severely disappoint, but doesn’t thoroughly impress, either. [SF Weekly]
