And the position goes to...

Dave Faries!

I'd heard a while ago that the Observer was looking to fill the position of food critic, and since then I've waited with bated breath to see who might emerge as the candidate tasked with writing the knowledgeable, compulsively readable reviews for city-dwelling diners that I fell in love with in my local alt-weekly over the past 20+ years. Looks like they've settled on Dave Faries, and I couldn't be happier with the choice.

I've been a fan of Faries for a long time, and his first review reminded me why. It's comprehensive (many dishes sampled over multiple visits by a tongue that knows what it's tasting), well-written and entertaining for the reader. Here's looking forward to a return to looking forward to each week's new dining posts on DallasObserver.com.

Color me corrected - I've removed the offending 'i'. :)

I was also both entertained and informed by Dave Faries initial review in The Observer. Witty and well-informed. Honest, but still empathetic with a young chef trying hard in a difficult venue.
