DMN Announces Addison's Replacement...Finally
A few weeks before the Christmas holiday, Bill Addison and I had lunch at Screen Door. At the end of the meal he said 'no reason to hide' and whipped out his real credit card to pay.
Yes, we all carry at least one piece of plastic with a phony name. And yes, I pretended to have left mine in the office.
"So, who's going to replace you?" I asked at that point. He mentioned Leslie Brenner of the Los Angeles Times...but keep it off the record, he added. Something about jinxing the whole deal. They also spoke with candidates from Cleveland, Denver (if I remember correctly) and a couple internal writers.
Well, earlier today the Dallas Morning News announced Brenner as their new food critic. Full release here.
We at the City of Ate welcome her to Dallas.
