My Dining Hell with Jay Rayner
Jay Rayner has been restaurant critic for the London Observer for over 15 years, written reviews of well over 700 establishments, and if there is one thing he’s learnt it is that while readers like reviews, they really love reviews of bad restaurants. No, scratch that. They adore them, feast upon them like starving vultures who have spotted fly-blown carrion out in the bush. In My Dining Hell, Jay examines our love affair with lousy reviews, rants about his most hated restaurants fads, lists his bottom five most excruciating nights out.
