Critiquing the Critique of the Critic

2009_04_cocritique.jpgFollowing Jim Lahey's rebuke, a critic who shall not be named comes to the Bruni's defense: "If you serve food and charge full price it’s legitimate for a critic to review your restaurant. It might sound like BS, but critics are there to serve their readers, and if a restaurant has been open for a few months, it’s fed thousands of people and taken their money. Do you tell them that, if they didn’t like their meal, it’s OK because the restaurant just opened? Of course not. You charge them $17 for a pizza (or $18 for a plate of pasta), and hope they come back. Whether or not you agree with a critic is another matter. Taste, after all, is subjective." [EaterWire]
