Humor and Dining

November 26, 1990

Concerning David Sibley's "Restaurant Criticism Requires Substance and Not Triviality" (Counterpunch, Nov. 12), in which Sibley, an owner of Lunaria, criticizes Times restaurant critic Ruth Reichl:

I am among the many readers who enjoy Reichl's reviews, as much for the humor as the actual critique.

I like hearing what Reichl's guests and the "Reluctant Gourmet" think, because I'm not a food critic. I don't go into spasms of rapture when tasting the perfect truffle (heck, I've never even tasted a truffle). But I like to go out once in awhile, and I want to know where I'll be treated warmly, will be served good food and have a nice time.

While I may not get to Jimmy's or Spago very often (read never ), reading Reichl's descriptions are the next best thing.
