Gina Mallet, restaurant critic, dead at 75

Gina Mallet, whose approach to restaurant criticism earned her the praise of many readers — and the scorn of others — died Thursday at age 75. Mallet, a former restaurant critic for the National Post, and long-time theatre critic for The Toronto Star, had been diagnosed with bile duct cancer and had recently been moved to the Kensington Hospice in Toronto. Even last year, as she struggled with her illness, she still had the will — and wit — to criticize the food at St. Michael’s hospital in Toronto, where she spent some time last fall.
