Meet Staphmeal

Yesterday, Georges Perrier’s attorney initiated a libel suit against the person behind Philadelphia’s most notorious restaurant blog, Staphmeal, naming “John Doe” as a defendant. But today, he can change the filing to reflect the actual name of the once anonymous blogger, which Staphmeal himself has just confirmed to me to be Joshua Scott Albert.

He says he has worked at Amis, A.Kitchen and Zavino, among other places. And the future of Staphmeal in light of this development?

“Just because I am outed does not mean that the website is going to come down,” he promises.
