Did critic really change mind?
YOU ran an article on food critic Jay Rayner who lambasted Belfast restaurants last year (News, July 22). After a visit, you feel he may have changed his mind. I would not be so sure. Rayner's remark – that "Belfast is now fully geared-up for visiting gourmands" – is a backhanded compliment when you consider a "gourmand" is exactly the opposite of a "gourmet".
