Scammers Looking for Free Food Impersonate Village Voice Critics

A Brooklyn restaurant "got a surprise visit by two Italian-looking guys claiming to be Village Voice food critics, and asking for some free food from the kitchen. When asked for their names, the men replied that they couldn't say because they're 'anonymous' (natch)," the Voice's Sarah DiGregorio writes. The restaurant owner "continued to chat the guys up, which apparently made them more and more nervous, until they got up and left just before their food was ready."
