The recieved wisdom is that the post of restaurant reviewer is much sought after by journalists but very difficult to come by. Are you envied by your colleagues, and having done the job for a few years, do you feel blessed or cursed?

Oh, it's a great job. But it is work. I'd much rather eat in a restaurant I'm not reviewing, so I can pay more attention to my dining companions and less to the décor and the doneness of the salmon.

So then, where do you like to dine in NJ or NY when you are not reviewing?

Other than home? It's kind of a miscellany, since 99 percent of my dining out is done in restaurants. But ... I love Cafe Panache in Ramsey, and Esca and Marseille in the theater district in New York.
