About Our Authors and Contributors Eve Zibart has written more about dining and entertainment than most people experience in a lifetime. In her first job as a temporary night city editor for the Washington Post, Eve quickly exhibited prowess in her prose coupled with an aptitude for grammar and an extensive vocabulary. She rapidly moved through the ranks of the Post as a "Weekend" assistant editor, a "Maryland" columnist, the "TV" editor, and a "Style" feature writer. Currently, Eve is the restaurant columnist and resident nightlife writer for the Washington Post's "Weekend" section. Known to friends and fans as "Dr. Nightlife," Eve has enough experience and knowledge to advise the Joint Chiefs of Staff on national trends. In addition to her responsibilities at the Post, Eve is a regular contributor to USAir inflight and Four Seasons magazines and has written for Cosmopolitan, Book Page, and Playboy. Given an amazing ability to turn 24 hours into 30, Eve has found time to author several books, including The Unofficial Guide to Ethnic Cuisine and Dining in America, The Eclectic Gourmet Guide to Washington, D.C., The Unofficial Guide to Branson, Missouri, The Unofficial Guide to New Orleans, and The Unofficial Disney Companion: The Inside Story of Walt Disney World and the Man Behind the Mouse. Bob Sehlinger is the creator and executive publisher of the Unofficial Guide series. He has authored over 20 books on travel and outdoor recreation. Lea Lane (Accommodations contributor) is a freelance writer specializing in travel, food, personality, and lifestyle articles. She currently contributes to and edits guidebooks (including Fodor's Greece '97, Birnbaum's USA, and Zagat's restaurant and hotel guides) and is a contributing editor to Reed Travel Group's Star Service hotel guide. She writes freelance articles for publications including the New York Times, the Miami Herald, Washingtonian, Caribbean Travel & Life, Travel Agent, Hotel and Motel Management, and Crain's New York Business and for the Prodigy interactive computer service. She is a credited contributor to three major books on cruises and resorts and is coauthor of The World's Most Exciting Cruises (Hippocrene, 1994). Sukey Howard (Dining contributor) is a longtime observer of the New York culinary scene. She writes "The Spoken Word," a monthly column surveying audio books and has commented on the audio book scene regularly for CNN. As Sybil Pratt (her nom de cuisine) she is the cookbook reviewer for BookPage. Jim Leff (Dining and Nightlife contributor), dubbed "the godfather of the New York underground food scene" by author Anya Von Bremzen, has written about New York City restaurants and nightlife for Newsday, New York Press, Time Out NY, Brooklyn Bridge, and Down the Hatch. According to the New York Times, Leff is "unsurpassed in discovering unusual restaurants in every corner of the city," and his Chowhound Web site (www.chowhound.com) is a gathering place for ardent eaters and "exactly what you want to see on the Web." Look for his Eclectic Gourmet Guide to Greater New York City, to be published in late 1998.
