Sommerstad, Patricia In the Footsteps of Ruth Life Skills- Food,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Come with me on a unique adventure that's part of New York City's culinary history! Ruth Reichl was the NY Times food critic from 1993-1999, famous for her “populist” reviews of restaurants that everyone could enjoy and afford. Previous Times reviewers had focused on the stuffy, expensive high-end restaurants, but Ruth changed all that! Of the almost 400 restaurants that she reviewed, over 75 are still in business almost twenty years later! In this workshop, with foreknowledge of her (often very funny) reviews, we will walk in Ruth's footsteps to “visit” seven of them. We'll examine what has changed and what remains the same. Then we'll explore the neighborhoods of each, visiting familiar landmarks and discovering off-the-beaten-path attractions, such as rooftop bars and unusual museums, special interest tours and more. You will leave with seven all-day itineraries, seven Ruth Reichl restaurant reviews, and most likely, several prizes! 1 ½ hours. 21 prizes. Handouts
