Cliff Bostock

CL Correspondent

Bostock is a long time Atlanta food critic who was a "foodie" before "foodies" ever became a thing. He's been eating his way across the tables of Atlanta restaurants for more years than he will admit, finely honing his taste buds in the search of epicurean ecstasy.

Bostock is also known for his thought-provoking "Paradigms" column as well as "Headcase" — yes, the name says it all — both of which have intrigued Creative Loafing readers with his acute analyses of ever-changing contemporary contemplations.

Not all great chefs feed humans. We’ll get to that, but first I should explain that I’m not a homebody. I’ve always seen my psychology clients in my home office in Grant Park, but I’ve done most of my writing in coffee shops. I even dedicated my 400-page doctoral dissertation to the staff of the Ansley Starbucks. Now, thanks to COVID-19, I have no choice but to sit in place at home. That brings... | more...

It was mid-July and I had not eaten in a restaurant in four months — not even outdoors. The idea was terrifying. I imagined people huddled on crowded patios, inhaling and exhaling the coronavirus like smoke in a hookah lounge. They would all be 23 and drunk, flaunting their dolphinlike lungs and uncreased skin, or they would be escapees from nursing homes blowing kisses through fingers coated... | more...

It’s hard to write enthusiastically about restaurants when they’ve become precarious stages for a public health drama. As I am writing this, Mayor Bill de Blasio has ordered New York City restaurants and bars to close and, just as I turn this in, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has mandated the same for Atlanta. The coronavirus pandemic is causing mass hysteria unlike any most Americans have seen... | more...

Twenty years ago during frequent visits to LA, I often visited a late-night taco stand on Santa Monica Boulevard, not far from Silver Lake. I stood at a counter outdoors and watched the nightlife while I ate perfect tacos. My usual impromptu dinner companions were two transgender hookers who called the taqueria their “safe space.” Yes, I frequently hummed Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side,” a... | more...
