Robert Sietsema Joins Eater

By Chris O'Shea Comment

We just heard that Michael Musto has some new gigs, so allow us to share some other former Village Voice writer news: Robert Sietsema is joining Eater. Sietsema had been the Voice’s food critic for 20 years before being fired.

A little about Sietsema’s new role:

Eater has never had a food critic, so Sietsema’s pieces will not be reviews. Instead, he’ll write microneighborhood dining guides from the outer reaches of every borough and file on crucial overlooked discoveries as he continues his explorations of New York’s restaurant universe.

Eater just benefitted from the Voice’s mistake.
