Eat Salem: Food Critic Launches on Salem-News.comSalem-News.com
A spicy new addition to the menu at Salem-News.com
(SALEM, Ore.) - Dining in Salem is often a discussion touched upon by tourists, newcomers and longtime residents around town. Where should you go for dinner? Who's menu is hardest to refuse? What is open late at night?
These questions and more are taken on by the new blog, Eat Salem, a new feature on Salem-News.com.
The precursor to a new dining guide to be launched at the end of July, General Manager Bonnie King says, "Eat Salem is a cutting edge way for would-be diners here to learn the inside scoop on the local digs. It's an opportunity to get a virtual feel for food in a city that should represent the best Oregon has to offer, yet sadly always doesn't."
"We're doing this anonymously so restaurant owners won't know who the Eat Salem critic is, so they'll have to treat everyone like a food critic," says Eat Salem. "If we tell them we're coming, then we aren't going to get the same service that Joe Public does, and that's exactly who we represent."
So, the critics with the new food blog Eat Salem, are going to remain anonymous.
Honesty is the policy, and that means that every restaurant in the Salem area that serves good food and service has something to look forward to. When local establishments offer outstanding quality chow with an attractive presentation and great customer service, then it will be a pleasure to rant and rave about how good they are.
Accordingly, those that offer food and service that are disappointing will also be justly described to readers.
With this new service teamed with Salem-News.com, Salem area locals have an opportunity to apply a sort of cyber pressure on restaurants and help them in raising the bar when necessary.
Eat Salem is more than a critic's corner; the site also includes listings of area restaurants and other special features. The new food blog is up and running, check the link on our front page or just click here: eatsalem.blogspot.com to get the flavor of what's to eat, and where, in Salem, Oregon.
