Your new go-to source for Dallas restaurant recommendations

If you’re heading up I-35 toward the Metroplex sometime in the future, you probably want to start following Michalene Busico on Twitter and Instagram. The Dallas Morning News announced last week that the long-time journalist has stepped into the role as the paper’s restaurant critic.

Busico, who takes the place of Leslie Brenner who left last summer, has worked as food editor at the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and Robb Report. Busico was raised in California by first-generation Italian-Americans and discusses her personal and professional history with food in the story on the DMN website.

Welcome to the Texas food scene, Michalene.
