Stefanie Tuder is an experienced New York City-based writer and editor who's written for publications including Eater, Cosmopolitan, ABC News, Food Network Magazine, Zagat, and Time Out New York. She's also adept at appearing on camera, podcasts, and the radio.


Stefanie's specialty is helping people figure out where to eat and what to buy through service-focused guides, packages, and maps. Currently, she leads consumer content at OpenTable, where she encourages diners to discover the best restaurants around the country.


The bulk of Stefanie's focus has been on the restaurant world, where she's explored everything from the rise of natural wine and NYC's khachapuri obsession to cultural appropriation and the powerful people funding it all. Stefanie is an expert on reporting the ins and outs of the life of a restaurant, from raising money and creating a menu to the controlled chaos of opening night and untimely closures. Her stories — on the charms of The Palm — opinions — The Smith is unfairly maligned — and reports — did you know NYC has not one, not two, but nine Chinatowns? — have been read millions of times. 


Stefanie graduated from the classic culinary arts program at the International Culinary Center in New York City and cum laude from Boston University with a degree in magazine journalism and a Spanish language minor. She enjoys reading romance novels and eating out as often as possible.
