Eater's suspicions that new Observer food critic Scott Reitz is a hipster dreamboat have been confirmed, as Reitz revealed today that he does not own a television. The first two lines of his recent review of Tei-An Soba House's live sea urchin sushi say it all: "I haven't subscribed to cable in more than seven years. And I haven't owned a TV for about half that time." Then, something-something raw seafood.
We first suspected Reitz of hipster dreamboatitude earlier this week when we found out that Reitz digs Cannonball Adderley on vinyl, writes in a Moleskin and owns Slash, the autobiography of Slash, thanks to a telling Twitpic from the interior of his apartment. Maybe next time Reitz will review some pizza and casually mention he once saw Liars before they were big.
