Title: In Appreciation of Meridith Ford
Post by: uOTPia Dweller on August 15, 2013, 04:50:31 PM
Let’s address the big white elephant in the room up front. The Urinal & Constipation restaurant reviews have spiraled towards irrelevance since Meridith Ford left. The clockwork contrarian insufferable reviews of Jenny Turknett are bad enough. But now their lead writer is reviewing craptastic chains like Golden Corral.

The newspaper that brought us Richard Jewell is covering Dixie with the spew.

How do we get Meri back?

"John Kessler reviews the Golden Corral" is such obvious link bait, even if I still enjoy his writing. I rolled my eyes at Jenny's three part review of the French Laundry. While that's the kind of thing I don't mind getting a little fanfare, breaking it up over three days was excessive. But really, all I want is to read about restaurants I might want to eat it and whether they are worth the time and money. None of these things make me want to go out and explore food.
