Sam Sifton has been the chosen one to fill Frank Bruni's shoes as the new restaurant critic for the New York Times. And while I know nothing about him (yet) I think I already kinda like him. Between this narrated slideshow of the food in Trinidad, and this little Q&A, he's quick, witty, and doesn't come across the least bit pretentious. All of which, in my book, adds up to the, dare I say, perfect restaurant critic. Particularly for the dining-out climate now. His seemingly casual approach seems entirely relevant and with that said, this girl is greatly anticipating his first review.
