So a couple of years ago you ragged on Dolinsky for tweeting what he thought about a place on opening night or something (do you remember what that was?) What’s changed since then?

I didn’t rag on Dolinsky for tweeting on opening night. I ragged on Dolinsky because he faux naively suggested it wasn’t a review or that his opinion doesn’t carry weight. As you know, I’m a believer that when the door is open and people are paying full price, judgement is fine. However, if last night had been bad, I probably wouldn’t have said anything, because I’m not a cold-hearted bastard.
I fully understand that what I tweeted last night will be regarded though and that’s the intent. I thought the chicken and Mac and Cheese was outstanding and I think people should know about it.
Also, unlike many when I get a free meal or I have a relationship, whether it’s a feature or a review, I disclose it as I did last night (I paid but I know them).
It would probably be also interesting that I was asked to review them in a few weeks, but I declined because of my relationship, i.e. I’ve met them many times at their Sunday dinners and over interviews and felt the review would be compromised as such.
