Apparently, the Union-Tribune's food writer and restaurant critic, Maria C. Hunt, is gone. The U-T published a story by her in last Thursday's Night & Day section on the new Fresh & Easy Market in Chula Vista. At the end it said Maria C. Hunt is the former restaurant critic for the paper. She had been there for four years. Also gone is the architecture critic, as well as some 15 to 20 other features writers and staff according to an report (not confirmed by the U-T) that was posted in another forum I read.
