New Hampshire Magazine Top Restaurant Picks for Fall/Winter

Not sure how they can recommend a restaurant that hasn't even opened yet, but here it is:
And why is the dateline future-dated November 1st, when nearly all of this info is weeks, if not MONTHS old? Almost like reading an old-history and a future-report at the same time?
I agree 100% it's all about advertising dollars they they get promised to spend in the future and not about quality
It's a good round-up of NH's culinary happenings. I think it would be near impossible to keep everything up-to-date with places coming and going on a weekly basis. Yes, some of these places have already closed, but hey, I've seen other media outlets make similar faux pas on a number of occasions.
I will agree, however, that NH Magazine does coordinate their reviews with their advertisers, as they tend to give places recognition and love "upfront" they then solicit for ads. And, if you participate in their annual "Best Of NH" program, you'll be sure to get plugged in the back of the magazine. That being said, I think it's a great article and that it's a shame half of those places mentioned in it will probably be closed within a year.
For sure -- I heard this first-hand from a restaurateur this week; they received a very positive review in a major local newspaper....... had blowout business the following weekend, then were aggressively solicited for advertising.
I suppose that's just the way it works. Thank goodness for Chowhound and some other resources.
