Katherine LewinManaging 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.
