Because I pretend to be too humble to write about myself, I asked editor Michael Schaffer to announce the news: Y&H will appear in the 2010 edition of Best Food Writing with last fall’s cover story on Zagat.

You can read all about it over on City Desk in the boss’ generous post.

As fate would have it, this week’s Young & Hungry column will revisit the subject of Zagat — and why only fine-dining restaurants reach the upper levels of the guide’s food ratings, even though, say, a well-executed Thai restaurant or a gourmet burger joint should technically be able to score 30 points, too.

Look for it Thursday in the paper and online.
