This morning, critic Besha Rodell of the Creative Loafing announced that Jennifer Zyman, one of its regular food and drink writers, has been selected as the Atlanta editor for Eater – a national website that posts frequent daily updates on food and drink related news.

According to Besha’s post, Eater founder and president Lockhart Steele explained:

“We’re interested in breaking news,” Steele told me. “We’re not afraid to get gossipy. We’re interested in the experience of dining out.” There will be no recipes and no original restaurant criticism, although the site will round up what the city’s critics are saying. You can also expect previews of new places. “We want to cover the entire lifespan of a restaurant,” Steele says. “From the time it’s a glimmer in the mind of a chef to when it opens, through the reviews, to a year into its life and beyond.”

In full disclosure, Ms. Zyman is a friend of mine and I have also been a longtime admirer of her blog even before I knew her personally. I can’t think of anyone who will be more committed to this new role, so my heartfelt congratulations go out to Jennifer!

Great news for both The Blissful G and Eater (the existence of which I was not aware until Ms. Zyman joined). Still, I hope it won’t mean a drop-off to her TBG posts and reviews, which are terrific.
