"I'm feeling more and more drawn as an eater to emotional responses. The visual side of food is extraordinarily important, but that doesn't stop me from being totally blown away from a fantastic dish of pasta cooked by somebody's grandmother."

"Real soul food does affect you in all of your parts."

--Carla Capalbo on Taste Matters

"For too long, service has suffered [in casual restaurants]. In 2012, I think you'll see a refocus on service."

"The casualization of the American dining scene is the most significant thing to happen in the past ten years."

--Andrew Knowlton on Taste Matters

"It doesn't cost a restaurant one more cent to be polite and thoughtful."

"As much as I enjoy the show Top Chef, I think it's had a negative effect on how chefs cook. Food has become competition. Dishes have become full-on assaults."

--Adam Rapoport on Taste Matters
