Mmm, Midweek Links

• In the Food Chain, Julia Thiel takes the just-released Opinionated About Dining guide to task for its lazy bicoastal bias and its author's lack of anonymity.

• Mike Nagrant wasn't too impressed with the new Rockstar Dogs, nor with Rosscoe's Chicken & Waffles (neither was Monica Eng).

• Top Chef: The Extrovert got all fanboyish on Padma Lakshmi at a recent fundraiser. Meanwhile, Chuck Sudo handicaps the chefs. And The Stew has a sneak peek video for you.

Is Greater Than seeks out a veganized Famous Bowl.

• At Food In Mouth, a visit to Andrzej Grill in honor of the recent Pulaski Day.

• The MenuPages Blog says we're going through a tapas renaissance. Meanwhile, Zagat thinks were in the midst of a gastro-lounge craze.

• I'm a little sad that I missed this last week: Mac and Cheese Cupcakes!
