Overview

Fearless Critic restaurant guides offer brutally honest reviews from undercover chefs and food nerds dining incognito and are totally supported by user funding rather than paid advertisements. The Fearless Critic is utterly unique in its candor, its rigor, its irreverent lack of deference to the sacred cows, and its devotion to finding a city's best food, wherever it may lie. Each review is a full-page long and includes a food rating out of 10, a feel rating out of 10, and practical information about the restaurant. The handy reference section lists all restaurants by cuisine, neighborhood, and special features and offers a specific guide for vegetarians. More than just entertaining reads, these are essential references for anyone who eats out.

Critics rate and review restaurants in and around Portland in their trademark brutally honest style.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Fearless Critics don't announce their presence; they dine incognito. They don't take free meals or expect preferential treatment. Their reviews aren't puffs or scathing critiques to impress readers. The Fearless Critic Portland Restaurant Guide delivers 400 full-page reviews of eateries in this emerging culinary hotspot. This 500-plus-page tome also contains 60 pages of reference lists and a special vegetarian guide. One great restaurant find can make the whole book worthwhile.

    Keep it handy!!!

    Who has money to waste on a bad dining experience? This guide hits almost all of the major dining experiences in Portland and gives an honest and informative review of the establishment and their food. They also rate the 'feel', just in case feeling cozy is more important than the wine list (which they also have a separate rating for) or the food. There are lists in the front of the book that go by neigbhorhood, top-rated places, and type of cuisine, so ease of finding something great if you wanna stay close to home or need to satisfy a craving for vietnamese in the middle of the night is outstanding! Complete with average price, hours, and contact information this guide is endlessly useful. I moved to P-town three months ago, use this guide weekly, and it has not failed me yet!!! I'd recommend this guide for newcomers, locals, and tourists that have time to dig into the insane food scene in Portland.
