The Critics

kliman-online-graphic-100.jpgWashingtonian critic Todd Kliman recounts a fun story about a man posing as the Washington Post's critic Tom Sietsema at a restaurant: "I knew it wasn't TS — for one thing, he botched the pronunciation — but I know he didn't know that I knew, so I asked him about his job, said it must be fascinating. He dropped his voice low so no one would hear us and said, 'I'm not the guy. I just say that to get a good meal. Works pretty well, usually.' He had a grin of the s-eating variety."
