I noticed yesterday that they apparently stopped updating the restaurant database. It’s hard to put a precise date on it since the search function is semi-broken, but I think they stopped sometime in 2014.
This week they apparently dropped the Inside Scoop page, which wasn’t getting updated very often. That URL is now redirected to the Food page.
Inside Scoop was largely a front page for the blogs by Chron food writers, which seem to be dead. Bauer’s last blog post was in January, Justin Phillips’s last was in March.
I never see the print edition. Does anyone other than Bauer write actual reviews any more?
