Patricia Unterman- conflict of interest?

ML8000 | Apr 9, 2008 12:09 PM

Who you kidding, Patricia Utterman was terrible at the Chron. Not only was she a restaurant owner while being a critic (in the same town) but she was a grade A food snob.

Her last book on SF greatly redeemed her but the restaurant ownership and reviewing in the same town was too big of a line to ignore.

The snob stuff just brought everything to an unbearable level. She wrote that taquerias were fast food and insulted half of SF at once. Even if I agreed with something, like prep and quality, the way she went on about herself was beyond annoying...bad writing and bad reviewing.
