Eater quits Toronto

Eater quits Toronto

Eater raised a few eyebrows last fall when it marked the debut of its new Toronto arm by publishing a weirdly tone-deaf list of the city’s 38 “essential” restaurants. Now, less than a year later, the American mega-site is abandoning its Toronto and Vancouver regional blogs (Montreal appears to be safe, at least for now). The windup doesn’t come as a huge surprise: Eater had trouble holding onto a Toronto-based editor, cycling through three in about eight months (the first, Carolyn Grisold, left about a week before the site’s official launch party), and its real estate–minded sister site, Curbed Toronto, stopped publishing two weeks ago. The Canadian retreat comes on the heels of a major redesign for Eater, which was recently acquired by U.S. digital media company Vox.
