I don't always agree witn Andrew Zimmern, but I applaud his open-mindedness to try everything and anything. I think he is usually fair when it comes to his reviews, but I also remember that his reviews are from his viewpoint only. And I find him entertaining.
If you have a great and viable product or venue for serving it, there will be many other reviews. Those of us who like to try new places will try them regardless of if some one person says it is good or bad. We want new places to be great. Especially locally owned and operated places. We will give you a chance!
