In the oh-so-trendy world of food and restaurants, there are the Real Deals and then there are the Emperor’s New Clothes. The latter restaurants are becoming more and more common, even if seldom more likely to stick around than they were in the past. As a veteran journalist, what I love about working with Melissa is that she knows the Real Deal when she tastes it and is able to express clearly and concisely what makes it so. It’s fun to enjoy (and cover) the Real Deal restaurants with Melissa and leave the Emperor’s New Clothes to somebody else.
