Restaurant reviews for the people.

You know the trusted friends you turn to when you need a restaurant suggestion? That’s us. We aren’t “professional” food critics, meaning you won’t hear any pretentious foodie hobnob from us. We also aren’t restaurant industry insiders, nor do we accept invites, comped meals, or solicited reservations. Ever.

What we are is a website and mobile app started in 2009 (then as Immaculate Infatuation) by two guys who wanted to help their friends find not only great restaurants, but the right restaurant to suit their needs on a particular evening. That’s still what The Infatuation is built on today. We strive to make the reviews that we write both entertaining and useful, so that you can find a restaurant that’s “Perfect For” whatever you need, be it some Action At The Bar, or Authentic Ethnic Eats. The only difference is that these days there are few more of us on the team, and we have a whole lot more friends.

Co-Founder & CEO

Originally hailing from the great state of Colorado, Chris Stang moved to NYC in 2002 to chase down a dream job in the music business. After spending nearly twelve years in marketing at Atlantic Records, he now runs The Infatuation full time, spending most of his time writing, and coming up with names for the Golden Retriever he doesn’t have. Stang was recently nominated for a James Beard Award for his very real review of the very fake restaurant, Underfinger, which he someday hopes to bring to life as a food-themed amusement park in rural Scandinavia

A native New Yorker and talented writer, editor, and human, Hillary Reinsberg was the third person to join The Infatuation full time. She came to us via BuzzFeed, where she held an editorial position in their News & Japanese Snacks Department. Just kidding. She does really love Japanese snacks though.

Katherine Lewin

Managing Editor

Katherine Lewin lives in Greenpoint, so she's definitely cooler than you are. She also grew up in Austin and went to college in Los Angeles, so she's also far more knowledgeable about BBQ and sushi than any of us can ever hope to be. Along with writing features and reviewing restaurants, Katherine's job at The Infatuation is to keep all of our other city editors in line, by any means necessary. Her previous roles include copywriting at J.Crew, and Drill Sergeant at Navy SEALS.

Sam Faye

Chicago Editor

Originally hailing from the great city of Detroit, Sam Faye has spent an immeasurable amount of time eating in Chicago’s greatest (and often most mediocre) restaurants. We are still figuring out when to tell people about his severe disdain for Chicago sports teams. Probably later.

Born and raised in Illinois, Brant moved to LA 6 years ago because except for Tilda Swinton, humans don’t naturally belong in winter. In his spare time, Brant enjoys tweeting about the chaos of Trader Joe’s parking lots and attending Corgi social gatherings throughout the region.
