Great read: In the weekend’s @wsj magazine, @thejgold reflects on the laurels of Noma and @gachatz’s Aleina — the World’s Best Restaurant and the United States’ Best Restaurant, no. 6 in the world, as ranked on the 2011 San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, respectively. The piece is classic Jonathan Gold; you feel like you’re sharing the table with him, the writing is so alive on the page. Read his lede about “The Hen and the Egg” (pictured) and tell me you cannot smell that damp, smoldering hay.
