    Todd Barry Not the Only One Who Worships at the Altar of ChipotleAs you now know, Todd Barry is a big fan of Chipotle, and he’s not the only one that considers it one of New York’s “great restaurants.” The Tex-Mex chain is just one of five joints (along with Tia Pol, wd-50, Hearth, and the Spotted Pig) that Momofuku lists as “friends” on its Website, and in this magazine’s profile of David Chang, he makes clear that it influenced Ssäm Bar: “I tried to get a job at Chipotle when I got back from Japan, but they wouldn’t hire me,” he says. “They knew what I was up to.” It’s easy to see the parallels between Ssäm Bar and the Tex-Mex monolith that’s invaded Manhattan. “A lot of this is premised on what Chipotle’s done: Make affordable, good food, and do it with integrity.” We’ve noted that Bobby Flay is also possibly a fan of Chipotle (indeed Bret Thorn overheard him calling it “good food”). And we’re sure Chang and Flay aren’t the only ones. So when will Chipotle’s founder, Steve Ells, finally be nominated for a Beard Award?

  31. The New York Diet
    Comedian Todd Barry Eschews Tomatoes, Eggs, and Mayo, But Not 33-Cent CookiesOn Late Night With Conan O’Brien recently, Conan called comedian Todd Barry “the quintessential New Yorker.” That doesn’t mean he’s at Balthazar every morning. “Every time I talk about Chipotle in conversation,” he told Conan’s audience, “Someone goes, ‘Oh, Chipotle is delicious. Can you believe they were started by McDonald’s?’ ‘Uh, McDonald’s is delicious, so yes, I can believe that. It’s not like Ben and Jerry’s opened up a lingerie shop. It’s the world’s greatest restaurant chain taking a stab at another kind of food and hitting it out of the park.’” Other than that, Barry eats at Café Orlin about five times a week. Since it was closed for renovations this week, he had to practice his tomato, mayo, and orange-juice pulp aversions elsewhere.
