Columbia professor falsely complains of food poisoning at 240 NYC restaurants for study

Ruby | Sep 8, 2001 10:03 AM

Has anyone seen this morning's news article about a junior professor sending out complaint letters on Columbia letterhead to 240 restaurants to see how they'd respond? The article mentions Chez Josephine and Mesa Grill (Mesa caught on to the scam because dates and details weren't mentioned) but I wonder who the other 238 restaurants were and how they responded. The professor must be a chowhound!

Want to stay up to date with this post?
