We missed this yesterday, but Bill Addison reported on the Eats blog that Dave Faries has been named the new dining critic at the Dallas Observer. Faries used to write a column called the Burning Question for the Observer, and he used to do some food reviewing there too, before he took off for Prague (lucky lucky) to write dining reviews for the Prague Post.
I did a little scouting around the office. Here’s what I found out about Faries:
Cons: Close talker. Long talker. Always carries a legal pad. Always.
Pros: Enjoys a drink or two. Considered by some to be a bit of a dandy. Gorgeous eyelashes.
We realize none of these things have anything to do with food, but good info nonetheless. Best of luck to Dave. We’ll be watching…
