Not happy with a recent restaurant review from Post and Courier critic Hanna Raskin, those in charge at North Charleston eatery Dashi decided to retaliate with stickers. Raskin gave the Asian-Mexican-Spainish fusion restaurant 1.5 stars for the fare that she categorized as “stoner food.”
The folks at Dashi decided to embrace this moniker with the slogan “I love stoner food” on its new merchandise, along with the snarky hashtag #screwyouhannaraskin. Ouch. While some restaurants take reviews as a learning opportunity, others take offense. This isn’t the first time a Charleston establishment has spoken out against Raskin’s critiques. Here are just a few of the controversies over her tenure in the Lowcountry.
- Raskin versus Chez Nous
- Raskin versus Stereo 8
- Raskin versus Malagon
- Raskin versus Halls Chophouse
- Raskin versus Swig & Swine
The James-Beard-Award winning writer knows she’s a divisive figure here though. She recently sat down with Southern Fork podcast host Stephanie Burt to talk about her job and the controversies. Raskin tells Burt that she knows hateful internet comments are all just part of being the public eye.
