Post-Dispatch restaurant critic Joe Bonwich published his final review today, reaffirming downtown institution Tony's (410 Market Street; 314-231-7007) as a "perfect" dining experience and awarding it four stars out of a possible four.
Bonwich will continue to work on the Post-Dispatch's "Let's Eat" food section. (Even employing the secret semaphore that all restaurant critics learn, Gut Check has been unable to reach him for comment.)
Evan Benn, the paper's "Hip Hops" beer blogger and an assistant editor for its weekly "Go" supplement, took over as restaurant critic last week. He tells Gut Check that he will continue in his role as beer blogger, but will no longer be editing "Go."
Last month, the Post-Dispatch laid off food editor Judith Evans, who had been with the paper for 26 years.
