A Brouhaha Brews Over Gerdy
It started as a hubbub of comments in regards to Short Order's post about MIA, a large dining/entertainment complex slated for downtown -- the debate being about the merits of such a venue, or lack thereof. Then MIA's executive chef-to-be, Gerdy Rodriguez, became the focus of discussion -- the debate being about his capabilities or lack thereof, the debaters being local chefs who profess to have worked with Rodriguez. Aliases prevent us from knowing who the chefs are, but it is suggested by one blogger that "Chef CC" is Clay Conley; we certainly can't say, although he and Gerdy did work together. Point is, it's getting nasty, and folks who like this sort of stuff might want to check it out.
