Restaurant Critic Roundup: Critic Shakeup
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.
The restaurant critic world was shaken up this week with the news that Brett Anderson was laid off from The Times-Picayune in New Orleans.
In brighter restaurant critic news, The New York Daily News is back at it with new restaurant reviews. Stan Sagner reviewed the Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya, and gave it a pleasing 3 stars.
Two more New York critics reviewed Hakkasan this week, giving it almost the same poor scores as last week.
The Miami Herald gave good ratings to Jean Paul’s House, which, in keeping with its name, gave off a homey vibe. Michael Bauer was not so impressed with the new Lucy in San Francisco.
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.
