Daily Dining News: Aftermath of a Negative Tower Cafe Review

Not often that one review can carry two days of posts in a row. After yesterday's less than mild review of Tower Cafe, Sac Bee restaurant critic Blair Anthony Robertson responds to what appears to be volumes of feedback he received.

So why the massive response this week? Many wrote to say I had validated their opinion, that their friends had considered them cranks and oddballs for not loving this restaurant. Some folks wrote or called to say I am an angry, bitter person. That's not fair. Comments like that make me angry and bitter.

But seriously, I never begin the review process thinking I am going to slam a restaurant. I always keep an open mind, am always on the lookout for things I had not considered, and I am always looking to be entertained. But I also know my role as a critic. I look for the good first - but I never ignore the bad.
