Reader: My advice to the new critic is don't look at comments

We'll publish our first review by our new Cafe critic, Gretchen Kurtz, next week, and in the meantime, you'll have plenty of chew on when our point/counterpoint on tipping appears here tomorrow.

But as commenters and critics alike know all too well, there's never any shortage of material on Cafe Society to discuss.

Says monopod:

Welcome, Gretchen. My advice: don't read these comments. Or if you do, have a thick skin and a sense of humor. Most of the folks here don't get out much.

Read more about our new Cafe critic here, and watch for advice from our previous Cafe critics.
