A Washington Post food critic was heralded by a woman who claimed one of his restaurant reviews exposed her husband’s affair.

During his weekly online Q&A Wednesday, Tom Sietsema shared a response from an unnamed woman who said a photo in one of his reviews showed her husband with another woman.

“Well Tom your latest review is accompanied by a picture of my husband dining with a woman who isn’t me!” the woman wrote.

“Once confronted with photographic evidence, he confessed to having an ongoing affair. Just thought you’d be amused to hear of your part in the drama,” she added. “This Thanksgiving I’m grateful to you for exposing a cheat!”

Mr. Sietsema — who has written for the post since 2000 — responded shocked: “Please, please, please tell me this is a crank post. I’d hate to learn otherwise.”

“I file two reviews a week, for Food and the Magazine, so I’m not sure which restaurant this is,” he added.

He later wrote on Twitter: “Cheaters, take heed!”
