Good-bye, Oysters and Pearls; Hello, United States

America can be an aria, too.

Sifton tweets that today is his first day at the new job, which means Grub Street's last day obsessively refreshing his tweets. "So that's it with the macarons. You can find me on the national desk starting this morning. Keep following. Hot, fresh news on its way," he writes. He's changed his icon (to a map of the country!), profile deets, and everything! Good luck with Team America; we'll handle the white truffles from here. [Sam Sifton/Twitter]
