Chef David Santos comments on "Teen Chef" Flynn McGarry's popup

Story: A veteran chef speaks out against 16 year old's $160 popup tasting menu

David Santos' original comments:

I'm curious how people feel, but I refuse to register for the media hype machine posing as food journalism that is Eater to comment there, so I started this thread.

So what are people's thoughts? Is Santos' view of a "chef" antiquated? Or is he right that the kid has yet to earn the moniker of "chef"? Is this a more general older generation vs millenials issue?

Note to mods: I x-posted a discussion to the Food Media board, but I feel there should be a separate NYC thread because many of us know Santos well (as well as EMP where McGarry did probably his most well-known trail)
