Fearless Critic Seattle Restaurant Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fearless Critic restaurant guides offer brutally honest reviews from undercover chefs and food nerds dining incognito and are totally supported by user funding rather than paid advertisements. The Fearless Critic is utterly unique in its candor, its rigor, its irreverent lack of deference to the sacred cows, and its devotion to finding a city's best food, wherever it may lie. Each review is a full-page long and includes a food rating out of 10, a feel rating out of 10, and practical information about the restaurant. The handy reference section lists all restaurants by cuisine, neighborhood, and special features and offers a specific guide for vegetarians. More than just entertaining reads, these are essential references for anyone who eats out. The definitive restaurant guide to the Seattle area, this book includes more than 300 reviews by a panel of local critics and undercover chefs, covering every corner of Seattle's vast dining scene.
