Not that I would be likely to go there in the first place. But I can't see how it can be good for that restaurant's PR to be known as the one that shouldn't be criticized.
Now instead of a single minor blog, when people search for the restaurant they will find every major media outlet in the western hemisphere; I can't imagine that being much of an improvement for them.
Edit: Oh, I forgot about all the sympathy reviews that they'd be getting now. Not from people sympathetic to the restaurant, mind.
Actually the publicity will probably result in them getting more bookings. I've seen this first hand when a "controversy" over something (in this case it was an album) resulted in so much exposure sales went through the roof. It also happens all the time in the games industry, outrage over games is literally manufactured to increase sales. So while it might make sense on the face of it that this story will reflect badly on the restaurant and reduce bookings, I'd actually bet on the opposite happening.

It is a dangerous game.

I went to a Resultant that was Famous for being Bad.
I was only a few hundred miles from it.
So, I drove out of my way to order and eat part of a piece of pie.
As I was eating it, I pealed back the crust to look at the filling.
It was covered with mold.
There was a mold growing between the Crust and the Filling.

Out in the Middle of the US there are places with some of the most interesting Nothing, I have ever seen.
There are a lot of miles between one patch of Something and another patch of Something.
In between, there is Nothing.
Canada has some Nothing, too.
Driving across the Middle of Canada is a little like piloting a boat.
I had read descriptions. The Reality was stranger than I had expected.

I thought I understood, Nothing. Things are better, today.
Canada has Wi-Fi in it's Nothing.
The US Nothing has Canyons.
No, Wi-Fi in Canyons, is there?
