Gets A New, Gridskipping Editor

Uber-popular New York food blog Eater has a new editor. We hear that Amanda Kludt, the associate editor of Gawker Media travel blog Gridskipper, has been named as Eater’s new editor. With parent company Curbed Network currently undergoing rapid expansion, we’re sure current Curbed editors Benjamin Leventhal and Lockhart Steele are pretty damn happy to have more time to focus on the business end of things.

No word on start date as of yet. Kludt, in our opinion, is one of the most underrated New York food writers to have come out of the blogosphere. Good move, Eater.
