Dine.TO new food writers and changes?

virtualvelma | Aug 14, 2008 07:37 AM

I read on an earlier post that some of you don't trust Dine.TO's reviews because it's a site where restaurants pay to be apart of it. I don't know if I altogether trust that, they have writers like Sara Waxman who have written for them - who is iconic in her own right.

I hear that her son, Adam now writes for them as well as this other new up and coming food writer, Marie Nicola. It looks like they write segments for a section that doesn't get archived and focuses on new restaurants. I just read Nicola's review on Steak (a new steak restaurant on richmond) and I really liked it, I read one other of hers on Spice Route, which was a little tongue in cheek, she mentioned something about young urban professionals on a thursday night and it made me laugh/feel her pain. But I can't find it now...

It looks to me that Dine.TO is trying to branch out and to find a niche in non-critical reviews and chef profiles and it looks like they are without stepping over the line.

I think Stephanie Dickison's posts on Dine.TO are some of her worst work and I don't even bother visiting the restaurants that she reviews.

Does anyone else have any experience with the Prince of Kensington's writing or Nicola's work?
