Matt Ortile, who works in editorial development at BuzzFeed and helps run the company’s Filipino-focused Twitter feed, pronounces his last name “or-TEE-lay.” And on this summer TGIF, he also is not ashamed to present himself as “HOR-nay.”
Under a tongue-in-cheek “Newsflash” headline and sub-hed ‘My Loins Are On Fire,’ Ortile slavishes manly praise on Michael Chernow, one half of the duo that owns New York joint The Meatball Shop. To fully complete Operation Must Sit Down, he plumbs the man’s workout regimen, Instagram account and J. Crew sideline gig.
The BuzzFeed tags for Ortile’s item are michael chernow, chefs, hot guys, restaurateurs who can get it, the meatball shop. But the author forgot one: lusticle.
