Disasterous NYT Article on Dining in Mexico City

From the NYT Travel section --

I found this article to be pompous, condescending and laden with errors - spelling errors, locational errors and errors about the food itself. Errors made by Mark Bittman and errors the copy editors failed to correct. Whether the errors were Bittman's or the editing, it lends no credence or credibility to either.

Mexico City is one of the worlds best dining spots these days but you'd never know it from this poorly executed article. Even if I didn't know quite a bit about Mexican cuisine, there is nothing - NOTHING - in this article that would make me want to visit Mexico City and try the food.

Mark Bittman should just leave Mexican cuisine alone. This follows less than 6 months after an equally disasterous and error filled article on tacos. In that he demonstrated that he has little knowledge about Mexican cuisine. This most recent article demonstrates that he either can't or won't learn about it. I sincerely hope that whoever the local chef was that squired him around D.F. never sees this article. S/he could be appalled.
