Deceptive use of review @ Logan Tavern

Has anyone noticed that Logan Tavern has taken their generally quite negative Washington City Paper review and spun it loudly as a positive one?

There is (or was, not sure) a huge sign in the front window full of highly selective and in some cases completely out-of-context quotes from the review. They even post this in the bathrooms. The funniest part is that after the quotes they say "Todd, you're too kind!". I had to's almost as if they know what they're doing and that line is an in-joke.

Of course, the original City Paper review is now behind a pay firewall.

I'm used to seeing this in movie newspaper ads, but I've never in my life seen it done at a restaurant.
