Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I seldom miss reading your daily newspaper because it publishes many interesting and engaging local news, and today, I would like to take this opportunity to request you to publish one such local news which, I thought, could benefit the food lovers of our great city. Well, on second thought, it is more like a review of a restaurant, not news, that I would like you to publish.

I, along with my family, visited this restaurant called “Pinewood Food” about a week ago, at night, to enjoy some local dishes, but then actually ended up having a dinner that included a generous buffet and drinks, and that too at a very affordable price! In fact, the buffet cost us just a little over half the price of the dinner dishes that we were planning to eat! Moreover, the heavenly taste of the foods told me that they were cooked with utmost care!

On top of that, the restaurant also had a very friendly and homely environment to make its customers feel very comfortable. And because of these reasons, I thought that the restaurant was definitely worth visiting.

I hope you would publish a review of the restaurant soon.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Moore
