In this week’s review of Saul (200 Eastern Parkway, 718-638-5000), Zachary Feldman meditates on the connection between food and art. “The trend to deify chefs and food-world personalities has exhumed comparisons of chefs to artists and the sum of their cooking to works of art,” he writes. “There’s no denying food’s intrinsic visual significance, not only in terms of what makes a dish appetizing but also as an expression of a chef’s vision. The expression ‘we eat with our eyes first’ isn’t just something uttered by a terrifying creature in my nightmares.”
