Eater Can't Figure Out Who Lee Klein Is

Today Eater's national arm did a nifty -- well, if you are in the restaurant biz -- roundup of anonymous restaurant critics, and guess who was mentioned? Our own Lee Klein. While most of the anonymous epicures are exposed in photos, Eater couldn't come up with a image for Klein, instead describing him as bearing "a striking resemblance to actor Robert Englund (AKA Freddy Kreuger)."

Lee should probably be insulted. His rotund body can hardly make it through our office door as he wheels himself in his favorite Scooter Store power chair.

Eater also says Lee never makes reservations, preferring to just walk up sans disguise. We don't know what you would call the glued-on mutton chops and monocle he wears when we comes into the office, but it looks rather like a disguise to us.

Guess Miami chefs will have to continue living in fear --  never knowing when Lee will walk-up and give 'em the ol' Mr. Chow.
