Restaurant Critic Roundup: Editor Needed at San Francisco's Hillside Supper Club

Every week, The Daily Meal rounds up restaurant reviews across America

As always, the ratings range from stars to bells to beans, but every review offers specialized insight into the food, atmosphere, and service of eateries in each city’s dining scene and the critics eating at them.

This week in New York, critic Pete Wells ponders not being able to obtain three-quarters of a pound of brisket with the digital scales at Mighty Quinn's Barbeque, after getting "an unsmiling, have-it-our-way reply: 'You can get a pound or a half-pound.'"

In San Francisco, Hillside Supper Club's menu is "all over the place." "The owners clearly have vision and talent," continues critic Michael Bauer, "but could use an editor."

In Washington, D.C. America’s "affection for grazing is acknowledged" on Ambar's Yugoslavian-inspired menu, which is "for the most part a collection of tapas-size plates meant to encourage exploration."

From the East Coast to the West Coast, from North to South, the weekly restaurant critic roundup is here for all of your dining out needs.
