Grand Forks Free download ï 2 A legendary 86 year old food critic brings together a collection of the best down home no nonsense restaurant reviews from Red Lobster to Le Bernadin culled from her fifty year careerWriting for her local North Dakota newspaper the Grand Forks Herald since 1957 Marilyn Hagerty went from obscurity to overnight sensation in 2012 when her earnest admiring review of a local Olive Garden went viral Among the denizens of the food world obsessive gastronomes who celebrate Alice Waters and Michael Pollan. Marilyn Hagerty is the first to say she s not a reviewer or a food critic Her Eatbeat column in the Grand Forks Herald is just that a recounting of her culinary encounters in and around Grand Forks North Dakota She visits each restaurant a few times usually with friends in tow She doesn t hide who she is in a town of 55000 she probably couldn t but she doesn t accept free meals eitherMarilyn s writing is straightforward and factual She lets you know her opinions about oversalted soups and sloppy coleslaw but she doesn t pretend that these are anything than her opinion You taste the food with her tastebuds and see everything with her eyesIt s easy to see why Internet snark police thought Marilyn s polite but unenthusiastic column on Grand Forks s first Olive Garden was hilarious If you don t get that it s a personal experience column and not a review it seems weird to devote ink to the Olive Garden In context near the end of these 128 chronologically arranged reviews you can see that her writeup damns it with faint praiseI was surprised that the freuently snippy Anthony Bourdain loved Marilyn s Eatbeat columns so His introduction talks about watching the lutefisk and walleye gradually disappear from menus and seeing chain restaurants such as Red Lobster and Ruby Tuesday overtake the mom and pop lunch spots He seems to understand that the Eatbeat columns make a time lapse movie of dining out in a Midwestern university town He seems to respect them and Marilyn for thatThe form of the book disappointed me I didn t expect the multiple column newspaper layout to remain but the articles feel sort of dumped into the book Editorial notes follow some but not all of the articles It took me a while to realized that the notes appear only after the last article about a given restaurant The notes aren t consistent either Some have uotes from Marilyn some give details about business closures and some just say that the restaurant continues to operate or no longer operates in Grand Forks It feels unevenThe biggest disappointment for me was the lack of any kind of index or table of contents I realize that few people will use this as a guidebook to eating in Grand Forks and that s fine But that inconsistency in the notes wouldn t have bugged me so much if it were explained in an editor s note or if a TOC or index could clue me in that I d see another article on the same restaurant later in the book It doesn t seem like a serious treatment of a book that s billed as a historical documentAll in all Grand Forks A History of American Dining in 128 Reviews is a pleasant read and an interesting series of snapshots It s nostalgic for small town Midwesterners and an education for anyone who considers the Midwest a flyover zone
