What dishes are restaurant critics more likely to order when dining? How have restaurant reviews changed over time? Why are people so obsessed with food right now? Find out on a critically themed episode of Taste Matters. This program was sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

“It’s much more difficult than ever to find your way through a menu…The weirder and more offbeat a dish, the more likely I am to order it.”

“The only food I really have a visceral approach to is mayonnaise.”

–Jay Cheshes, restaurant critic at Time Out New York
