Bitter knows no bounds. Following the fallout over N.Y. chef David Chang's remark that "fuckin' every restaurant in San Francisco is just serving figs on a plate," Grub Street's Adam Martin activated his iPhone's calculator and got busy running the percentages. Hi conclusion? "Figs appear on more plates in New York than they do in San Francisco." Read the raw data here. Of course, as a Grub Street reader points out, in context, Chang's statement is about S.F. chefs' general ineptitude with produce far beyond figs. But, well, going there is pretty much like throwing lardo on a sauté pan flare-up.
