" Greene is often credited with popularizing the term “foodie,” which she used in a column in New York in 1980. (In 2012, she noted how the word had since gained a place “on everybody’s list of toxic words in food writing… When I said it, it was a wonderful thing to be.”)"
She was a wonderful sensual restaurant critic during her time at New York Magazine. And forget about going unnoticed. You knew she was in the dining room with all her flamboyance intact.
RIP, Gael Greene
