Why does WS write about Charlie Trotter every year? Is it a fine restaurant? Many believe so, but there are so many fantastic mom 'n pop restaurants all over the world that excel without the media pimping for them constantly. What do you think WS' motivation is? Does it assure reservations for WS edtors and their associates and friends? Do they really think it is that good, and Charlie Trotter important enough to mention every year, sometimes more than once a year?
I just don't get it.
