I’m Sue Kidd, a longtime food journalist and restaurant enthusiast who is committed to helping grow the Tacoma and Pierce County dining scene. I previously was the restaurant critic and food editor from 2004 to 2019 for The News Tribune in TacomaBefore that, I was the restaurant critic and dining columnist from 1997 to 2004 for the King County Journal.

This website is an independent journalism project. No advertising, promotional consideration or payments of any kind are accepted for articles. The only way to get an article written is to do something newsworthy, interesting or engaging in the Pierce County dining community. The only financial support I accept is through my Patreon.
