Lucy Simon is a New York-based wine, spirits, and food writer who has been working and studying the industry for over five years and has been with Food & Wine since the spring of 2021.


Lucy Simon has always been infatuated with the world of food and beverage. As a kid she toggled between the Food Network and Disney Channel, balancing cartoons with cooking shows. Lucy grew up surrounded by wine and gained an appreciation for it at an early age from her grandfather who was an importer and whose cellar she loved exploring.

While studying food systems at Tufts University, Lucy spent her weekends working at one of Boston's busiest restaurants where she fell in love with the industry. After returning to her hometown of NYC, she continued her beverage education cooking and curating the menu at Accidental Bar, a sake bar in the East Village. Lucy joined team Food & Wine in the Spring of 2021 and has worked for both print and video, and her written work can be seen in a variety of sections across the magazine.


Lucy graduated from Tufts University with a bachelor's degree in Anthropology and minor in Food Systems & Nutrition. While there she channeled her love of food and culture into her thesis on restaurant resilience amidst COVID-19, with a focus on the social, political, and economic history of restaurants.
