Idle gossip

October 3

As a journalist, you must never write anything that you have not confirmed (a former colleague, Jamie Peters, quoted a journalism professor as saying “if your mother says she loves you, get confirmation.”)
So I’m not going to write that Drew Nieporent and his Myriad Restaurant Group are planning to open a Vietnamese restaurant in New York with the folks from Bao 111.
It’s just a rumor, and Drew knows better than to provide further details before the ink is dry. You’re just asking for trouble when you do that.
