On this week's Ask the Critic, Carey gave advice for a fellow restaurant critic:

Always be thoughtful, always be thorough. Your job is not to record your own unedited thoughts ("I don't usually like mushrooms on my pizza but this was delicious!") or unexamined reactions ("The service seemed off," full stop.) Your job is to think more deeply about restaurants than everyone else around you, to inform yourself as much as possible, and to strive for objectivity whenever possible.
