In my most egomaniacal moments, I hope that the real food critics use blogs as a way to identify places that they should check out.
The Sun actually reviewed Bon Fresco yesterday -- saying that the bread was exceptional and talking up the lentil soup and the grilled vegetable and spicy Italian sandwiches. This was ironic because Elizabeth Large posted an email from me two months ago as part of her posts about "places we probably won't get to as well." This was also terrific because the Sun will drive more people for Bon Fresco's bread and sandwiches -- a crusade that I have been on since they opened last summer.
The truth is that the Sun probably saw the recent WPost review. But either way, I'm a huge Bon Fresco fan. A great place to grab lunch if you're doing errands in Columbia today -- especially that potato salad.
Thanks to Cari and Sarah who pointed out the review!
