Mariani also explains his process: "I do tell the restaurants that I'm coming for the simple reason that I'm not technically a daily city newspaper critic who pretends to be anonymous when everyone knows who they are... I go as a feature writer. I want to talk to the chef, and I tell him to make me his best dish." [Houston Press]
