Dining/Lifestyle Editor

Chelsea Lin has been covering Seattle's restaurant scene since she traded in her California sunshine for Seattle grey in 2009. She's contributed to dozens of local and national publications—mostly about food and drinks, but occasionally about travel, music and people doing cool things. When she's not searching for great dim sum or investigating the newest coffeeshop, she's obsessively baking layer cakes in her tiny kitchen and letting her two young kids lick out the bowls.
