FOOD + DRINK EDITOR. Rhiannon Pena, our Rhilicious restaurant columnist, is a native of Austin, TX, who currently resides in NYC. She has a reputation of recommending excellent establishments to dine at all over Manhattan. Her ability to find the perfect place for any occasion has set her apart from many other critics who tend to only focus on the “hot” places of the day. Living in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, she has found restaurants that are not only appealing by theme but by cuisine type. Her knowledge base comes from her dining experiences from some of the most frugal establishment to the exclusive and upscale. She has a strong conviction with ensuring the feedback she provides to the consumer sets the right expectations in regards to the food, drink, décor, service and cost. She is pursuing a certification as a sommelier. Rhiannon’s favorite charity is Stop Child Trafficking Now.
