Periodically there is discussion about the state of reviewing and whether critical reviews, particularly negative ones, are still possible in this age of social media. My reviewing is pretty much limited to books and the occasional movie or stage production so I have no idea if this same debate is going on in the world of restaurant reviewing. All I do know is that New York Times restaurant reviewer Pete Wells is out for blood in his latest review. Punch by punch by punch it exudes fury like nothing else I’ve read in a long time. I can only presume he feels the restaurateur in question deserves every smack. But boy oh boy is it harsh!
