Christopher Cook

Christopher Cook, our chief restaurant critic since 2004, wrote our “Restaurant of the Year” story. Born in England and raised in France, Cook grew up in a family of seven children, and the kitchen was a laboratory of experiments and luscious dishes. Cook has worked for U.S. publications coast to coast. He’s a frequent guest on Michigan Radio’s Stateside program, a judge for several wine competitions, and superintendent of the State of Michigan’s annual one. “Detroit has been remarkable this last year, when it comes to new restaurants,” he says. “It’s as if we’ve gone from re-emergence to resurgence in just one year. I know of at least 20 new places we could review — and each week I hear of something else that has opened.”

 

Leyland "Lee" DeVito

Leyland “Lee” DeVito joins Hour Detroit as associate editor, bringing more than six years of experience writing for Detroit’s alternative weekly, Metro Times. A native metro Detroiter and College for Creative Studies graduate, DeVito will continue to cover the city’s art and culture beat. In addition to Metro Times, his writing has appeared in Vice, Chicago’s New City, and Cleveland Scene, among others.

 

Sarah Rahal

While attending Wayne State to study journalism with photojournalism concentration, Sarah Rahal has experienced firsthand Detroit’s growth and revitalization. “I love seeing it, being a part of it, and helping people tell their story,” she says. “Detroit is a city big enough to matter in the world, but small enough for you to matter in it.” At a young age Rahal was inspired to change the view of others through images and the written word. Besides being an editorial intern at Hour Detroit, Rahal is the design and multimedia editor of Wayne State’s student newspaper The South End, and has been an intern at BLAC Detroit Magazine, Metro Parent Magazine, and Metro Times.

 

Joe Vaughn

Photographer Joe Vaughn has traveled nationally and internationally, capturing images for such publications and clients as Mario Batali, Conde Nast Traveler, Martha Stewart Living, Sports Illustrated, Food Network, Eating Well, and GQ. After spending a week shooting this year’s Restaurant of the Year, it became clear that “Chef Andy (Hollyday) and Evan (Hansen) have created something very special for our city that will be tough to duplicate,” says Vaughn.
