So We're Still Looking for That Food Critic ...

If we don't find a critic soon, I'm going to start reviewing local potato skins. Get your sour cream guns ready, area chefs.
If you pay much attention to this blog and its accompanying newspaper, you've noticed that we've yet to fill the oft-sneezed-upon shoes of Hanna Raskin, our former food critic and lead blogger, who's now doing those things in Seattle, where apparently even allergens think it rains too much.

Well, we're still looking. Specifically, we're looking for an experienced, stylish writer with a passion for and in-depth knowledge of food and restaurants; a diverse and unique voice; a knack for (or at least a demonstrated interest in) blogging and social media; a serious work ethic; a sense of humor; and a willingness to help us work through the giant tub of Red Vines sitting on the window sill. Even more details about what we're looking for can be found in this ad for the position.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume and clips (or a sample review) to Joe Tone, editor, joe.tone@dallasobserver.com. No phone calls, please. It's hard to talk with a mouth full of Red Vines.

Bring back Dave Faries?

I would also get rid of Whitt at the Sportitorium and replace him with Alice Laussade. She does the guy talk better than the guys. More of Noah Bailey too if he is still around.

You DESPARATELY need these things - to replace the repetitive, monotonous, uninspired, uninformed and boring drivel that passes for the almost all of the current content of City of Ate.

You are confusing the problem with the solution.

That's not really fair...I mean, besides the awkward date column, most of the City of Ate content is pretty good and interesting.

Attila, I would love to read something you have written since you know so much about writing. By the way, if you don't enjoy the articles, quit reading them. Nice name by the way. Don't you think it is time for you to quit pretending you are the leader of the Hunnic Empire. Its time to grow up.

Whomever you losers are that have nothing better to do than criticize Ms. Berry, get a life.
