Media Circus, June 17: Food Writing and the City

Someone will tell you everyone is a critic. The critics would like to disagree. At a point where butchers are enjoying rock celebrity and your grandma is taking phone snaps of her pork belly at The Breslin, food culture in New York is in a new salad day, and everyone is ready to tell you about it. But are bloggers eating the traditional restaurant critics' lunch?

Join Gelf and other Big Apple gastronomes in a discussion of food criticism and the encroaching influence of blogs when Media Circus returns to the Brooklyn waterfront on June 17. Robert Sietsema, longtime restaurant critic for the Village Voice and contributor to the erstwhile Gourmet (interview here); Alex Vallis, editor of NBC's new food blog, Feast (interview here); and Gabriella Gershenson, Editor of Time Out New York's dining section and blog, The Feed (interview here), will cut up and digest food writing in the world's hungriest city.

The work of local artists will be on display as well.

The event will be held Thursday, June 17, at 7:30 pm (doors at 7:00 pm) at the JLA Studios gallery at 63 Pearl St. in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn--just one subway stop away from Manhattan. Admission is FREE. Drinks will be available.
