    They got what they wanted, their 15 minutes of fame and cheap publicity, now its time to get back to trying to sucker people into buying their 3rd rate food. Politics should have nothing to do with food.

    Considering the restaurants ratings and Kenji's skills in the kitchen, I seriously doubt that their food is anywhere near "3rd rate". That said, he made a blunder with his tweet. That's the peril with social media, as certain world leaders have discovered, (or not discovered, as the case may be). I seriously doubt this is going to hurt his business, given his restaurants location.

    He went from Serious Eats to Serious Tweets.

    It is getting harder and harder for the "Look at me!!!" crowd to get what they want. The folks who wear the hats and the people who love to hate them should get a life. I don't agree that politics should have nothing to do with food, though. I've eaten more than my share of rubber chicken at various political events, and I enjoyed every bite, because of the people that I was with.
