Dana Harris is the film editor for Variety, and author of The Knife – Variety’s
food blog. She is perfectly suited for the job, having worn many hats
over the years -- from sous chef, restaurant critic and food magazine
editor, to filmmaker and entertainment writer.
Dana looks at new restaurants angling for your expense accounts and lets you know if old standbys still make the cut. She’ll tell you if there are unpleasant surprises at the valet stand, if the chairs are comfortable, if you can hear yourself speak, if you can’t get out for under $100, how much they're marking-up the wine, where you can eat halfway between two studios, where there are private rooms and where you wouldn’t want to be caught dead.
Monday through Thursday, The Knife is where to eat and drink in the name of work; Friday is reserved for eating that’s strictly for fun and pleasure.
