Tim Carman from the Washington Post was in town recently, reporting on the contretemps between Dallas Morning News dining critic Leslie Brenner and various members of the Dallas restaurant community. Carman spent a couple of hours with Brenner, a couple of hours with Shannon Wynne, a couple of hours with the guys from Proof + Pantry, a couple of hours with John Tesar, a couple of hours in various other places — his expense report is probably pretty stout.
As it happens, I was working on a story on the same subject at the same time, so I kept hearing, “I was telling the Washington Post guy the other night…” My story comes out in our January issue. Carman’s is right here. Read it and let us know what you think.
Carman plays it mostly down the middle, though I would suggest, at least structurally, it ends up at least slightly on Brenner’s side. Mine? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see.
