Roger Gastman’s List of Banned Restaurants

LA Grub Street reports today that well-known graffiti curator & author Roger Gastman (interview here) has a list of banned restaurants. No, not places that won't let him in, but rather spots that are basically on his shit list. From the article:

"I hold a serious culinary grudge," Gastman says, "like pretty much forever. If you mess my food up or are rude and don't try and make it up to me I am never coming back. I'm also going to tell all my friends and anyone that will listen. And then I'm going to write your name on my BANNED LIST. I'm going to get mad at friends if I find out they ate at your place."
