Restaurant Critics Not Writing Dine-in Reviews

exit2lef | Jun 8, 202007:05 AM     26

I've noticed some dining critics writing essays in which they proclaim that they will not resume reviewing restaurants based on on-site dining, even as restaurants reopen their dining rooms in many jurisdictions. These are the ones I'm aware of so far:

Dominic Armato, Arizona Republic
Devra First, Boston Globe
Chris Malloy, Phoenix New Times

I'm interested in knowing if there are other professional critics who are doing the same.

Note: I'm not particularly interested in debating the appropriateness of their decisions right now. I may get to that point, but my immediate interest is in knowing how widespread the trend is, for better or worse.
