I'm the Reader's lead restaurant critic and have been a contributor here since 1995. I've also written about politics, crime, film, health care, and paleontology, and have profiled a rainbow of urban eccentrics. My work has been published in in Harper's, the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, NPR's The Salt, Plate, and Eater, and my story about outlaw charcuterie appeared in Best Food Writing 2010. My story "Chicken of the Trees," about eating city squirrels, won the James Beard Foundation's 2013 M.F.K. Fisher Distinguished Writing Award.
