The Critics

kauffman-critics.jpegJonathan Kauffman — the ex-anonymous ex-critic from Seattle Weekly and SF Weekly, now at Tasting Table — shares his thoughts on anonymity: "I think that anonymity made me a more fearless, honest critic... Even in the age of Facebook, JPEGs, and critic-busting blogs, what I think is even more important than actual anonymity of the Michelin guide kind is the practice of anonymity: Making reservations and paying under other names, keeping a low profile, not attending public events, keeping personal relationships with restaurant people to a minimum."
