Founder, Sorted NYC
Former Restaurant Critic, Time Out New York
Heather Tierney began her career as a restaurant critic and Eat Out Writer for Time Out New
York magazine, where she reviewed hundreds upon hundreds of the city’s top restaurants. She
has also made several TV appearances to discuss her food knowledge and restaurant expertise,
including the Food Network, Time Out On Demand, LX TV and NBC.
As a restaurant critic for an important cultural magazine, people looked to Tierney as an authority
on where to dine in the city, and in 2006 she launched Sorted, a private concierge service for
distinguished clients. The first concierge service to focus on a niche, Sorted connects people with
last-minute restaurant reservations, dining consultation and event planning. Tierney currently
consults for over 500 clients, corporations and luxury buildings.
In April 2007, Tierney launched a late-night event series, “Chef’s Night Out,” hosted by a
different chef at a restaurant around town each month. The series has attracted acclaimed chefs,
restaurateurs and editors, and Champagne label Veuve Clicquot has come on board as head
sponsor. Tierney currently freelances for various local and international magazines, covering
food, fashion and cultural trends.
