Ooh, boy! Danyelle Freeman, a new breed of restaurant critic, a maverick whose face accompanies her weekly reviews, was introduced to the city this morning in the Daily News. And not only is her face front and center, but she comes complete with glamour shots! Freeman gave Gemma 1.5 stars in her debut review, but the real gem is the News accompanying article explaining Restaurant Girls need to show the face behind the reviews. Ive felt like the Dear Abby of food for years, Freeman said, noting that she has been blogging since January 2006. Grub Street, for one, welcomes our new recognizable critics. With pics like those, how couldnt we?
