WSJ Hires Restaurant Reporter, Plans to Compete with NYT?

Some inside baseball stuff here: The New York Observer reports today that the Wall Street Journal has hired Newsday staffer Sumathi Reddy to become a restaurant reporter based out of New York. What's more, The Journal apparently thinks the Times, is "very beatable" in regards to New York restaurant coverage. Reddy currently covers immigration for Newsweek, and has also done some general assignment reporting.

This is the third big piece of food and dining news to come out of the WSJ in the past few weeks, what with the departure of critic Raymond Sokolov two weeks ago, and the departure of sometimes food and wine writer Janelle Carrigan and subsequent hiring of Jay McInerney and Lettie Teague as wine columnists last week.
