I have always suspected from reading Robin Rinaldi's reviews that she is a complete Twit who needs access to a word processor as much as terrorists need access to US passport making machines.
I frankly dont understand why the philadelphia weekly continues to hire idiots who know nothing about food or wine to write food reviews on restaurants. I have always thought Salt's menu was imaginative and different and actually had an excellent meal there last night. Hanger steak was tasty and proper temp, my dining companion's Cod was subtle but tasty.
She sounds like a wine snob who know's nothing about wine . She calls cured fish flavourless but when she reviews asian restaurants, it's tasty and "mellow". what a complete hypocrite.
I particularly find it very funny that she calls the food "too demanding for the average diner "
The point of restaurants like Django and Salt is to do things that are different not the same old BS that all restaurants in philadelphia serve.......balsamic reduction, xxx (fill in the blank) crusted tuna, wasabi soy ginger and all that pathetic latin food called nuevo latino.
I suupose she is perfectly happy washing down her frozen lobster mashed potatoes with a chocolate martini at the continental.
What a freaking joke of a food critic.
