And yet there I was in the restaurant and I ate that bluefin tuna, which wherever you stand on the issue you must admit is delicious, and I wrote about it.
Here’s a quote from his original article:
Some will take issue with the fact that Masa serves an enormous amount of bluefin tuna, a fish that some say hovers on the brink of collapse as a species.
What’s this “some say” bullshit? Nobody doubts that the species is on the brink of being deliberately wiped out, specifically so that asshats like Sifton can gorge themselves on $750 dinners. It’s amazing how many food writers lack a moral compass. And Sifton’s got as bad a case of foodie-induced moral relativism as I’ve ever seen. (Via Crossfield.) Link.
