Vegetarians Are Whiners
Dirt Candy is pissed that the New York Times had the audacity to do a "mini review" of her restaurant, that has been open for months, because, get this, THEY'RE NOT READY!
Wha, wha wha. CRY ME A RIVER.
It's an interesting piece that reveals a little more about the incestuous world of restaurant reviews. Apparently the NY Times discusses with the restaurateur when the restaurant believes it should be reviewed. "Diner’s Journal was working on a piece about restaurants being reviewed too early and he wanted to talk to me about this. We chatted pleasantly for a while and when the call ended he said, “We’ve been talking about it and we don’t think you should be reviewed yet.” What a difference a few weeks makes!"
It makes me sick.
To all you restaurants out there, listen up....
IF YOU'RE OPEN AND CHARGING FOR YOUR FOOD YOU BETTER BE FUCKING READY FOR REVIEW BECAUSE LIKE IT OR NOT - YOU WILL BE REVIEWED EITHER IN PRINT OR IN THE SPOKEN WORD.
YOU TAKE MY MONEY, I TAKE MY CHANCES, YOU TAKE YOURS.
