And a blatantly transparent one as well. Richman’s latest “critique” is about Brasserie Les Halles, a midtown Manhattan restaurant famous mostly for its association with Anthony Bourdain.
Richman’s review is, shall we say, petty, as he happily claims to bust a hostess lying to him and his companion and ripping on Bourdain who hasn’t cooked in the restaurant in 8 years (save for one night for his show). The remainder of the “review” is a self-indulgent trip into a thesaurus as Richman tries to upstage his own ego in an attempt to cloak his true purpose in going to Les Halles.
Guess Richman is a little bitter about winning the Douchbag award from Bourdain. Classy of GQ’s man, though, to take a shot at revenge by shredding the restaurant instead of responding to the criticism. Guess some critics really are just bitter douches.
