For the first time in its history, Eater has just welcomed aboard three restaurant critics — three full-time critics, armed with dining budgets and endless appetites for food and adventure. In collaboration with our parent company Vox Media's world-class product team, Eater aims to build the technology to approach restaurant reviews in a dynamic, modern way suited for the way we eat (and think about eating) now. That development is underway now, with the goal to debut it later this year.
Say hello to our new additions (learn even more about each of them over on Eater National):
(1) Eater's head critic in New York will be Ryan Sutton (@qualityrye), the super-sharp restaurant reviewer and data geek who comes to Eater from Bloomberg, where he served for nine years as Bloomberg's chief restaurant critic.
(2) Bill Addison (@billaddison), the esteemed dining editor and restaurant critic at Atlanta Magazine — following previous critical stints at the Dallas Morning News and the San Francisco Chronicle — is coming on board in the new position of Eater Restaurant Editor, filing reviews from the road, eating his way across America.
(3) And NYC treasure Robert Sietsema (@robertsietsema), who has been creating neighborhood guides, video tours, rants, raves, and first looks for Eater NY over the last nine months, is joining the team full-time, adding reviews to the mix.
