Four Stars to Sam Sifton’s Realtor

Now Sam Talbot knows where to find him ... for a little longer.

Over at Curbed, they say that the Times' restaurant critic, Sam Sifton, has sold his edgy Red Hook house — which must have a kitchen as mystical as Aldea's to offset its iffy location — for $1.25 million. It's reported that the place has 2,600 square feet, was originally built in 1899, and was bought by Sifton in 2007 for just over $1 million, "netting a $180,000 profit." Also, it sounds like he might have had a renter. We wonder whether the occasional doggie bag was factored into the lease? Though certainly not from Fishtag. [Curbed NY]
