Roving Rita Coming to ClearysNoteBook

I'd like to introduce myself to readers of Cleary's Notebook. My name is Rita and I live in Gloucester City, NJ. I'm a die-hard 'foodie', a person who is particular--and particularly interested in--food.

If you are a restaurant owner, beware: Rita's comin' to getcha! You just never know when I'll show up to critique your culinary skills, the overall attitude of your staff, the cleanliness of your establishment, and the value in dollars and cents, of your menu.
Whether you impress me or depress me, you'll read about it here!
