Every week, Restaurant SmartBrief editors scour the Internet for the breaking news and best-practices stories that restaurant owners and managers need to make their businesses smarter. However, every week, hundreds of fascinating food, beverage and restaurant stories don’t make the cut. Here are a few of my favorite stories from the past week that didn’t make the newsletter:
- Video: Amy Sedaris dresses up in Chipotle wrappers in this sponsored Funny or Die sketch, reposted by Eater.
- What’s wrong with “Top Chef Masters”? Plenty, according to chef and author Josh Ozersky, writing for TIME.
- How to evaluate someone pitching his of her social media services: The Bar Blogger offers five tips for spotting a social media fraudster.
- Leadership lessons from Food Network chefs, courtesy of BNET, hat tip to Nan’s Network.
