Food & Wine magazine restaurant editor Kushbu Shah and editor-in-chief Hunter Lewis discuss the future of restaurant criticism. SFA professor Catarina Passidomo examines restaurants as doorsteps to culture. We screen a new film that profiles Rodney Scott and Roscoe Hall and 21st century barbecue legacies. And chef John Hall hails Birmingham as a bold American food city.
