Eater drops a fluffy Friday list of favorite chef bars, which seems even more mailed-in than it deserves, which is saying something. Some interesting choices -- good to see love for Boston's Drink from Jose Andres, who also likes to drink at Versailles, in Miami (and why not)? But! Massamo Bottura offers the (private) Honeycomb Hideout on top of the Spotted Pig, because, I guess, it's inconvenient to carry around that Christmas card he got from Mario Batali to show to people? And Cod fave Sean Brock shows some aligator arms w/ a spot across the street from his place, but in the Gin Joint's defense, it's a solid bar, and "stumbling distance" is an big selling point for any bar. But Suzanne Goin -- remember her? -- pops up on the list w/ a plug that is compellingly shameless:
"I'm lucky that my husband David Lentz has one of the best bars in city at The Hungry Cat. It's a warm and familiar respite when I'm not working. Since it's holiday season, I'm a goner for 'Big Dave's Egg Nog,' which my father-in-law helps to make."
Goin's favorite bar happesns to belong to her husband? It's like the old Onion article
I mean, seriously?
