Jack Shelton's Private Guide To Restaurants

By Jack Shelton & Jack Juhasz

1967 - Vol. 1, No. 2

Jack Shelton... He started the first restaurant newsletter in San Francisco and wrote about food for the Pacific Sun and Focus. He gave restaurant criticism a good name when many critics were still eating on the cuff.

"Jack Shelton's Private Guide to Restaurants," had 13,000 paid subscribers when he sold it in the 1970s.

Proud of writing unvarnished reviews, Shelton valued his anonymity as a reviewer. Indeed, he wore a mask at one public forum: a 1974 Board of Supervisors hearing where he testified in favor of a measure that would have required restaurants to label frozen entrees on their menus.

Jack Shelton passed away in 1984.
