Chronicle critic leaves for Dallas

Food critic Bill Addison is leaving the Chronicle for the Dallas Morning News, the Express reports, with no replacement in sight.

Addison was at the paper for just nine months, having been hired from an alt weekly in Atlanta.

The Express says there's a hiring freeze in effect at the Chron, and that existing food staff will have to pick up the slack from Addison's departure. The staff is already pinch-hitting at the Inside Scoop column, which until October had its own writer.

The optimistic view is that perhaps this could eventually turn into a chance to hire Jonathan Kauffman back to the area from Seattle.

Well, that did not last long, eh?

Let's hear it for optimism. Jonathan's voice is much missed around here.
