Boston Chefs Will Not Stand By Their Man, Todd English


It wouldn’t be the first time Todd English’s cooking cred was called into question.

According to the Post, after Boston magazine called the Beantown-based chef a “tourist-feeding hack” and “half the chef he used to be,” a former publicist wrote a letter in his defense signed “Sincerely, Boston’s Restaurant Industry.” The only problem is that when fellow Boston chefs were asked to sign the letter in support, it soon became clear that English doesn’t have too many friends in kitchens left. In the end, when few other toques were willing to vouch for him, the letter ended up getting signed “Friends of Todd English.”
