From EaterLA.com:

Hi, I'm Kat Odell, and today, after nearly a month of contributing to Eater LA, I'm officially taking over as the site's new editor. I'm a longtime foodie with a propensity for cheese, sushi, and doughnuts who calls Venice home, and I'm excited to bring dining and drinking news your way in the classic Eater style -- with a few new twists, too. As ever, we can't do it without your help, so if you spot some fresh plywood, signage, or anything else resty-related, hit the tipline.
Kat's eaterla.com email address is la@.

RIP Cousin Keith -- it's been a year today.
