Restaurant Critic Faces Lawsuit

Posted:

A restaurant critic is being sued by a restaurant after he allegedly ordered a fifteen dollar piece of beef and then described it as “miserably tough and fatty.” The restaurant is seeking unspecified damages from the Philadelphia Inquirer critic Craig LaBan.However, there is more bad news in store for the critic, as he was forced to give his deposition on camera, and this poses the risk that restaurant owners all around could see his face, which would ruin his chances of anonymity.

A lawyer for the newspaper for which the critic works stated: “Mr. LaBan’s anonymity is important to the process by which he reviews restaurants. If a restaurant knew Mr. LaBan was in its dining room, it might put on a show for him that would not be provided to the general dining public.”

The critic’s review of the steakhouse that he visited read: “A recent meal, though, was expensive and disappointing, from the soggy and sour chopped salad to a miserably tough and fatty strip steak. The crab cake, though, was excellent.” However, the plaintiffs claim that he did not even have a strip steak, but had a steak sandwich without bread.
