Senior Editor (Food and Drink)

Allecia Vermillion spends her days tending to Seattle Met’s bar and restaurant blog, Nosh Pit, as well as various food- and drink-related cover packages, dining section pieces, and narrative long-form features within the magazine. In Seattle, this can mean anything from breaking restaurant news to imagining breweries as high school yearbook superlatives to eating a $200 foie gras–studded hot dog and pondering what it all means. 

In 2015 she received the magazine’s first-ever James Beard Award nomination for the origin story of Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte (“OMFG It’s the PSL”); the feature was also included in the book Best Food Writing 2015. She was a James Beard finalist again, in 2016, for her profile about the rise and fall of a promising chef ("The Brief, Extraordinary Life of Cody Spafford").

Allecia grew up in Portland, Oregon, but began her journalism life as a newspaper reporter in the Chicago suburbs, later launching Eater Seattle as the founding editor before landing at Seattle Met in 2011. She has an English degree from Washington University (no, the one in St. Louis) and a masters in journalism from Northwestern University.
