Besides our recent comment wars, we’ve also seen some heated action in the restaurant reviews, with readers focused on two new-ish Brooklyn eateries: the somewhat established but still green V-Spot in Park Slope, and Greenpoint’s own lightning rod William Taft Vegetarian Diner.
The Taft has eight reviews and counting, while the V-Spot is at an even ten. This compared with the newly opened (and New York Mag highlighted) Health Conscious Express in the East Village: zero reviews. But what’s most intriguing about this trend is that the reviews for both V and Taft are getting worse as time wears on. What’s the deal? Is this just negative response bias? Or are you guys just Brooklyn hermits like me?
More additions to our restaurant guide are upcoming, so stay tuned for new places to complain about.
