Jeff Ruby Replaces Dennis Ray Wheaton as Chicago Mag’s Restaurant Critic


Big news, buried pre-holiday: longtime Chicago restaurant critic Dennis Ray Wheaton is leaving his position, with his byline replaced in the magazine by Jeff Ruby. As for Ruby’s old gig working with Penny Pollack on the mag’s weekly restaurant newsletter Dish, he’ll be replaced by ChiMag editor Graham Meyer. Our heartiest congratulations to Jeff, a guy whose endlessly intelligent take on matters culinary we have long admired. We can’t wait to start tearing him apart in The Other Critics. We kid, we kid. Way to go, Ruby. [Dish, final item]
