I understand the Times reviewers are expected to make at least two visits to a restaurant. Do you generally bring the same companions back to a restaurant, or do you have an alternate team for the second visit? How much do you rely on the comments of the other guests versus your own considerations?

Thank you
Apparently it's easier still to dictate the conversation and in effect, kill the conversation.

The cast of characters usually changes from review to review. And as I said in an earlier post, their opinions do matter. They're knowledgeable diners, and seldom shy.
