Former Xpress food editor Hanna Raskin has accepted a job as the food critic for the Dallas Observer, starting June 1. Eater, a nationally-focused food and restaurant blog that often dishes about culinary cognoscenti like Thomas Keller and various Food Network stars, picked up the story.
A segment entitled “To Catch a Critic” features “potentially anonymity-busting photos” of Raskin in order to “give the local restaurateurs a helping hand,” although the food writer has clearly stated the Observer‘s plans to have her remain undercover. This begs the question: in a world like ours where privacy is increasingly hard to come by — especially for public figures — how do critics remain anonymous?
Regardless, the move is a big one for Raskin, and we at Xpress wish her luck.
