Amy Pitaki is back at the Toronto Star
This column about food safety in Toronto restaurants is hardly a good re-entry to the restaurant review game, after a year of knowledgeable, insightful reviews by her maternity replacement..
Are we to get a series of reviews for the prissy? The allergic? The politically correct?
The GTA has lost one good food critic, and retained the rest.
I find Amy Pataki's writing dry and tired. I really enjoyed reading Corey Mintz all this time and feel that Toronto Star should make him their regular critic. I think it's too bad he finally 'revealed' himself to some people cause I'd really like to see him do more reviewing.
I think I posted this somewhere else, but the Toronto Star USED to have the BEST food section of all the papers but it has slipped tremendously since Marion Kane left. It also used to be much thicker and have it's own section whereas now, it's bunched in with all sorts of other things, and I know it's a result of newspaper cutbacks. But still.
