Rachel Vigoda IN as Eater Philly Editor

Meet the site’s new leader

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

Eater is thrilled to announce that Rachel Vigoda is the new editor of Eater Philly. Her first day is today.

Vigoda is a longtime Philadelphia-based journalist. She most recently covered arts and entertainment for Philadelphia Magazine, and previously ran the entertainment, going out and nightlife sections of Metro Philadelphia (where she produced expansive coverage of restaurants and food). The travel fanatic, who is currently producing a guidebook to Pennsylvania for Avalon Travel, has spent most of her life in Philadelphia and brings an extensive knowledge of the city’s food scene to the table. She replaces previous editor Alex Tewfik, who moved on to a new position with Philadelphia Magazine.

Vigoda will work alongside Eater Philly’s staff of writers and photographers to comprehensively cover the area’s major restaurant news developments, as well as highlight its standout dining destinations. Reach out to her with tips and story ideas here, and don't forget to follow her on Twitter.
