Reviewing the Reviewers

Friday, January 28, 2011

In today's world of restaurant reviewing, hundreds of would-be critics share their opinions on sites like Yelp and Chowhound, and obsessive food blogs like Grub Street and Eater, and chronicle every dish in almost every restaurant. What does it mean to be a critic nowadays, and which reviews matter the most? Adam Platt, restaurant critic for New York magazine, and Raphael Brion, national editor for Eater, discuss how restaurant reviewing has changed over the past decade. They'll also take a look at reviews of Del Posto from Yelp, Zagat, the New York Times, and weigh the uses—and pitfalls—of the various outlets.

Reviewing the Reviewers: A Preview

Thursday, January 27, 2011

On tomorrow’s show, Leonard will be discussing the current state of restaurant reviewing with Adam Platt, the restaurant reviewer for New York magazine, and Raphael Brion, the national editor of the restaurant website Eater. But before we jump into the discussion, we wanted to hear your thoughts on what sources you find most useful when deciding where to eat.

Towards that end, we’ve decided to focus on two restaurants (for now): Del Posto, the first Italian restaurant to receive a four star review from the New York Times in decades, and Fatty ‘Cue, a new-ish Asian barbeque fusion restaurant in Williamsburg. Both have been talked about and reviewed quite a bit in the past year. We’ve posted links to the Yelp and UrbanSpoon pages, as well as to reviews from Zagat, New York and the New York Times. Read them and tell us what you think – which review gives you the best sense of the ambiance of the place? Helps you decide what to order? And, ultimately, tells you whether or not you should go?
