Newsweek: William Grimes on quitting as NYT food critic

Grimes tells Newsweek: “It’s like “Groundhog Day.” You wake up the next day having eaten a four-star meal, you must go out and eat another four-star meal. And you get up the next day and you have to go out and eat another four-star meal…You’ve only got so many meals in you as a critic. I think that when it becomes more of a job than a joy, then you have to think about putting down your knife and fork.”
