A source confirms that former Houston Press restaurant critic Kaitlin Steinberg has put in her resignation. Recently, the Voice Media Group announced that they would be replacing their full-time critic with a freelancer, and that Steinberg would take on a different editorial position. Today we learned that she will be leaving the alt-weekly in a couple of weeks, and that the Press will hire a new lead Eating Our Words writer in addition to the freelance critic.
A little over a year ago Steinberg replaced current Houstonia features editor Katharine Shilcutt as the full-time Houston food critic at the Press. The new critic will be a freelance writer who has "strong opinions that they are prepared to broadcast and defend" and who has a "sophisticated knowledge of food and restaurants."
