Yesterday BlackBook penned a mixed review of 15-year-old Greg Grossman’s pop-up dinner (the scallops on roasted tomato dish was “full of hits and misses,” but a quartet of tastings “made Grossman’s title of Wunderkind seem earned”). Today, Gatecrasher is a lot less kind: A frozen concoction “made with carrot, Stilton cheese and cardamom, had diners thinking ‘bib’ not ‘Bieber,’ and a crestfallen Grossman watched as the majority of the creations were returned to the kitchen, barely touched.” Also, though Grossman’s mom says they turned down a reality-TV opportunity, a source close to the producers says they’re the ones who passed on it. Hang in there, kid — we don’t want to see you on a Food Network show about fallen child chef stars.
