‘Times’ Confirms Meehan Is Over ‘$25 and Under’

Eater is reporting that Peter Meehan has resigned as the Times’ “$25 and Under” columnist. We haven’t been able to reach Meehan, but his editor, Pete Wells, told us, “Peter had a wonderful appetite and passion for the job, and we know he’s going to do really well in whatever his next project is.” The Times had recently cut his column to biweekly from weekly; the payday Meehan just received from Random House for selling a Momofuku book with David Chang may have been incentive to literally book it out of there. The Times will post the official story later today.
