At Food & Wine since: 2007
Born and Raised: New York City
Background: Grew up in a kosher home with separate plates for milk and meat but known to daydream about porchetta.
What I Do at Food & Wine: Write our newsletter The Dish and create fun web-exclusive slideshows.
Biggest addiction: Coffee (at least three cups a day). Current favorite is the café cortado at Abraço, but since I quit smoking four years ago, I’m always on the lookout for a new spot to get my next caffeine fix.
Coolest Food & Wine moment so far: Tie between being hand-fed Weisswurst by chef Kurt Gutenbrunner at The Standard Hotel Beer Garden and tipping bartenders-for-a-night Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen.
