NYT Restaurant Critic Sam Sifton Needs A Better Disguise

After serving as culture editor for The New York Times, new restaurant critic Sam Sifton may have to give up the convention of remaining anonymous to those in the back of the house. He’s already been spotted by celebrity chef Daniel Boulud.

As Page Six reports today:

“Daniel Boulud was cooking at the Epicurious.com Entertains NYC event last week when he got word that the incoming Times food critic had popped into his flagship Restaurant Daniel. ‘Boulud thanked everyone and bolted back to the restaurant before serving dessert,’ a source says. ‘He didn’t want Sifton to see his place running without him there.’ The source said of Sifton, ‘The problem is that all the chefs recognize him. Daniel didn’t say hi, but he knew he was there.’”

Sounds like Sifton should invest in a good wig or one of those glasses with the nose on them.
