Saveur Renames Its Blog from The Feed to The Daily Fare

When Saveur recently relaunched its website and named their new aggregator/blog The Feed, it was somewhat controversial because unfortunately, Time Out New York's food/restaurant blog was already called The Feed.

Note for the non-Dutch [...]

Widely reviled blogger-turned-restaurant critic Danyelle Freeman, a.k.a. Restaurant Girl, is out at The Daily News.

Simulated Farmers' Market Stand at a Kroger's Supermarket

Moonraking posts photos of an "extremely creepy Farmers Market simulacrum" at the entrance to a Kroger's supermarket, full of foreign produce. To give the stand more "authenticity," it's attended by an overall and flannel-wearing, sunglass-sporting stuffed "robot/Cylon" farmer.
