WaPo in a Pickle: Restaurant Review Ruined

Stop the presses?

WaPo‘s famed restaurant reviewer Tom Sietsema is in a predicament this morning after learning that a restaurant he has reviewed is closing its doors. Though he asked the owner why they were shutting down, the answer is quite cryptic.

At this point it remains unclear whether the review will run, as WaPo Magazine prints in advance. While Sietsema cannot reveal what is in the upcoming piece, whether it was favorable or otherwise, it’s still uncertain how higher ups will handle the obviously tricky matter.

UPDATE: Joe Heim, WaPo Articles Editor, checked in with FishbowlDC to say: “I’m Tom’s editor and just wanted to let you know that his review will still run. Unfortunately, that issue of the magazine is already being printed. We’ll run an editor’s note in the paper that day to explain.”
