Take That, Ruth Reichl! 

Four dozen young Oaklanders approach food criticism with eyes wide open.

The kids of Unity High School aren't shy with their opinions. Lillian Hsu, an English teacher at the fledgling East Oakland charter school, asked her three eleventh-grade classes to write restaurant reviews, which took the students all over Oakland, Alameda, and San Leandro. Some visited favorite haunts, while others embarked on culinary adventures -- and one or two might just put me out of a job one day. The 48 young foodies published their reviews this month as Flavors: Unity High's Guide to Bay Area Restaurants. (I found this out when I spoke to the students about being a restaurant critic.) Here are a few key excerpts. If you want a copy, contact Hsu at lhsu@unityhigh.org
