Chefs, like artists, are sensitive as hell.
Ask Graham Elliot Bowles of the whimsical River North eatery that's made him a star at Lollapalooza as well as a colorful fixture on "Top Chef Masters."
Tuesday he went hard on Chicago Magazine because he didn't like its review of the cuisine that'll be served at the three-day music festival happening in August.
His words cut right through the bone in a Twitter message directed at the magazine:
I hope this isn't some sort of trend.
In March, Sarah's Pastries & Candies was robbed, and thieves made off with several items, including $2,000 in cash, a laptop and printer.
Karyn's Fresh Corner had its window broken in May, with someone taking $1,000.
Now comes word that the favorite gelato spot of Girl & The Goat owner/chef Stephanie Izard has also fallen victim to hoodlums.
