Some things never change. Apparently Ruth Reichl is determined to perpetuate the Lois Dwan tradition of snidely reviewing a restaurant's location ("People who are shocked to find themselves in this part of town") as well as its food, service and ambiance ("The Blahs Are Banished at Cha Cha Cha," Aug. 3).
Perhaps your editors could instruct your restaurant critics to leave urban planning to the professionals. Failing this, these individuals should stay west of La Brea, where they undoubtedly feel less threatened.
