t says:  Anyone see the latest drivel to come out of LaBan’s mouth?  “I’ll reset the landscape of Philly’s restaurant elite.”  I’m sorry, but what?  I normally like reading LaBan’s reviews because I, myself, don’t get the chance to taste every single dish on a menu – so his reviews are like scouting reports.  But what arrogance this last comment exudes!  He must be a Michelin inspector or James-frickin-Beard, himself!  Taking yourself a little too seriously, eh?  Come on.  You eat food for a living.  It’s not theoretical physics.  It’s not fetal open heart surgery.  It’s not curing cancer.  It’s inserting matter in one end of a 30-foot long tube so your body can turn it into poo.  So let’s all take a chill pill and a slice of humble pie and just say, “I’m coming out with a new list of top 5 restaurants … and my previous top 4 might not have made the cut.  Please read my article when it comes out on 2/5, because if no one does, I may no longer have the privilege of making a living by doing something that every single other person on this planet can do.  Thank you.”
