Food Editor

Leah Mennies joins Boston magazine after spending a year covering the local food scene for NBC's lifestyle site The Feast. Her writing has appeared in The Improper Bostonian, The Boston Globe and Blackbookmag.com, among other publications. She also interned at Lucky Magazine, where she learned the high art of lugging garment bags around town in the pouring rain. She prefers beer to wine, icing to cake and Hebrew National hot dogs to Fenway Franks (sorry, guys).
