Review Solicitation Policy

I’ve been contacted by more restaurant owners and managers lately, asking me to try their restaurants and write about them.

I’m generally happy to do this, within the constrains of my work and family schedule, especially if it is a restaurant that is new to the area. I started this blog out of a passion for food and writing, and continue to operate it more as a labor of love than anything else.

My reviews aren’t for sale, nor am I interested in writing sponsored content. Having said that, I have and will continue to accept gift cards to cover a meal, but I will disclose the gift in the post, and, free meal or not, the review will reflect whether I liked the food and had a good experience.

I have also visited and reviewed restaurants in a non-public manner for various organizations. If you have a project in mind, get in touch and we can discuss my rates. You can reach me at mike@geekfoodcritic.com.
