If a "John Smith" is reviewing Mel's Diner, does it make a difference to the credibility of the review?
If the same "John Smith" is reviewing a restaurant called Sushi Land (for example), does it make a difference to its credibilty?
What if the reviewer's name was "Jean-Luc Pierre" and the restaurant in question was "The Hungry Burrito"?
Or, if the reviewer was named "Mao-Tse Wong" but the restuarant was "Bob's Big Boy"?
In other words, does it make a difference to you the (supposed) ethnicity or background of the reviewer in question vis-a-vis the restuarant?
Does a supposed Japanese restaurant critic have more "mojo" with you when reviewing a Japanese restaurant than a non-Japanese critic would?
