How Food Critics Hide

Take the time to wipe down your commercial refrigerators, guys, we’re going to talk a little bit about restaurant critics and the crazy practices that they use to make sure that they are treated just like everyone else. It’s important, because restaurant reviewers sometimes have the power to make or break a restaurant.

To be a critic, you must have not only a love of food, but you have to have an honest streak and turn of phrase. There have been hilarious blasts to restaurants, but what do you do when it’s a mediocre place that you can’t summon any vitriol?

If you want to go from being a restaurant manager into restaurant critic, here are some pointers.

  • Don’t make reservations under your own name.
  • Make sure that your picture isn’t included with the review. Restaurant owners will be able to identify you.

To listen to restaurant critics, you would believe that it’s a dying breed. After all, there are sites like Yelp and others to fill in the gap of getting an honest opinion about the state of the restaurant – from the commercial refrigerators to the servers.

“It would be a lie to say the service isn’t sometimes better when he is spotted, but without much warning, there isn’t much that can be changed about the food that is being served.”

We’d love to get paid to go around and sample dishes, dishing out honest opinions. If you’re a restaurant critic, we’d love to hear from you.
