Restaurant Critics

Restaurant Critics Businesses all over Charlotte have been affected by the recession and the restaurant industry is no exception. Our panel of restaurant critics and food writers includes Helen Schwab, Patricia Childress and Heidi Billotto. They are back to talk about the latest trends in the culinary world. Some of those trends include restaurant closings, but there are also new dining spots in town, favorites, changing menus and tips on hideaways that our restaurant writers will share with us. You are also invited to join us with your questions on the ever-changing restaurant scene in our region. We'll also hear some music from Tom Billotto who plays music at area restaurants (he also happens to be Heidi's husband.) Guests Helen Schwab - Restaurant Writer, The Charlotte Observer Heidi Billotto - Culinary Writer, Charlotte Living Patricia Childress - Food Writer and Critic, Creative Loafing and Asst. Professor, Johnson and Wales University Some of the Restaurants mentioned during the show WFAE Public Conversation | Southern Cooking Then and Now Add and read comments
