Eater is a digital media brand dedicated to all things food and dining. The Eater brand comprises a national site covering food and dining culture, 23 city sites tracking local dining scenes across hundreds of maps, a robust YouTube channel featuring documentary-style video about the inner workings of restaurants, and a variety of social channels, all run by a diverse team of writers, editors, producers, and contributors.
Eater’s coverage ranges from extensive city maps and travel dining guides marking all the best places to eat, punchy editorials exploring the cultural significance of what and how we eat, in-depth industry investigations, and light-hearted ruminations on food fads and cooking tips and tricks.
Founded in 2005, Eater was acquired by Vox Media in 2013, and since then, the brand has expanded to include the Gastropod podcast, a subscription wine club, and multiple TV series including No Passport Required on PBS and Hulu’s Eater’s Guide to the World. More recently, the food-focused brand joined forces with Punch, a sister site dedicated to drinks and drinking culture, when it was acquired by Vox Media in 2021. In 2022, Eater announced a deal with book publisher Abrams to publish seven cookbooks and travel guides.
Over the years, Eater has been recognized by numerous awards and organizations for its achievements in food journalism and media, winning 12 James Beard Awards, three American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) Awards, five New York Emmys, and more than a dozen Association of Food Journalists Awards to date.
