Checking my online subscription of the G&M just now, I noticed a review by Alexandra Gill from 14 November that I somehow had missed. This spurred an attack of nostalgia for the G&M having a Toronto restaurant critic. Ideally, a well informed critic (really ideally, a coterie of well informed critics - there must be a good collective noun)lives in symbiosis with restaurants, each party upping the other's game. As we are returning to some version of normality, it would behoove the G&M to get someone out there doing the hard work of eating, researching, thinking. (To my mind, the best lines were Jay Scott's when he was filling in for Joanne Kates, especially his applied-anthropology essay on a night at Winston's.) I invite educated guesses, informed speculation, and wishful thinking.

On a sidebar, has anyone readCorey Mintz's The Lats Supper? I haven't picked it up yet.
