Table Suggestions: See Spot Run...Again

Same Name. Different Spot.

We had our issues with Version 1.0. From time to time, I will admit that original Spot’s editors’ blog was an interesting read. But the attempt at a community-based, restaurant review site was ‘spotty’ to say the least.

Apparently, you can teach an old dog new tricks.With a new editorial team, a new direction and a new look, the reincarnation of might be worth a second look. While still in beta, it might be too early to pass judgement on this ‘new’ site. We suggest you take an exploratory visit. Poke around and tell the folks at Spot what you think.

Will Spot fetch and deliver this time around? Only time (and your page views) will tell.

PS. On an admittedly self-serving note, check out these interviews on Spot with Top Chef’s Ilan Hall and Dale Talde and the venerable New York Times food writer, Mark Bittman.

    Hah, I am a big fan of Marcel, Ilan's nemesis in Top Chef. Saw him at the Bazaar at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. Will have to go back again. Again, I am a fan "girl" for Marcel. Ilan, not so much. About Dale, I think he was wrongfully sent home by the judges.

    Looks like the site's been injected with some of's spunk (in a good way of course). Enjoyed the Mark Bittman article, but I bet Mario wouldn't punch anyone, he'd make them eat something, then they'd end up yakking for hours. Now I wonder who'd win if the fight were bobby flay and a. bourdain...

    Hello Bee Yin. Marcel in The Bazaar? I heard that he was working with Jose Andres but I didn't know where. Thanks for the info.

    Hi Mila. Interesting chef fight...Hmmm. My money is on Bourdain. In the end, I think Chef Bobby isn't as hard as Tony.
