To Catch A Critic

New, 15 comments

Totally unconfirmed, but this here blurry little photo is possibly the Los Angeles Times food critic S. Irene Virbila spotted at Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo's new Animal on Fairfax last night. The facts are as blurry as the pic: She was sitting with four others near the window, silver hair, glasses; they brought their own wine and ordered a lot of the menu. Sounds like her M.O. The staff was supposedly tipped off by a chef friend dining at another table, so no chance of anonymity here. We haven't seen a review or even a Critic's Notebook on Animal yet, so this is a total possibility. Will she like the bacon-chocolate dessert? [EaterWire]
