Worst Print Reviews [moved from New York State board]

Has anyone had a chance to read the "reviews" in the Scarsdale paper, the Inquirer? They are 100% positive, 100% of the time. The reviewer interviews the chef, so they know who she is. Gets a free meal presumably. Pretty lame.

    Sounds more like a paid advertisement than a review. I'm not sure what type of paper the Scarsdale Inquirer is, but if it's a small-town paper, then I would assume the "review" is more of a "feature." Our Hoboken (NJ) Reporter does something similar now and then.

      I just am stunned that they could print something so obviously gotten in return for a free meal.
