Passions flare hotter than a brick oven this week as we delve into tension spots in the food world – from the dining room to paperbacks.  Jessica Krainchich discusses seafood with an extra helping of murder alongside mystery author Shari Randall.  H Conley talks to both reviewers and chefs in a piece on the power dynamics of food criticism.  We hear Luke Griffin interview Nancy Torres, an activist who explains the impact that development has on our local Bushwick community.  Kevin Barnum finds himself in the thick of a classic culinary debate as he explores how New Yorkers react to Chicago-style deep-dish pizza.
