What you have to do? If you are preparing to do a restaurant review of a new establishment in town?



A. Call the restaurant management and let them know that you are going to be dining there. You could shore up your review with an interview, and journalists must always reveal their identity to sources.
B. Dine at the restaurant without alerting management. You would not want to get special treatment before your review runs in the newspaper.

Fair to the reader, although it might be considered unfair to the restaurant.
