L. E. Leone (formerly known as Dan Leone) is a writer, author of the Cheap Eats column for the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and member of the band Ed's Redeeming Qualities. Her food writing is notable for often talking much more about subjects such as baseball, chicken farming, and her personal life than about the restaurant being reviewed. Though her published works appear under the name "Dan Leone", in 2005 she announced in her Bay Guardian column that she was transitioning from male to female and changing her first name to "Ellie" (spelled "L. E.").
Leone also performs on the steel drum. Formerly, her moniker as a steel drum player was "Lord Exister"; she now answers to "Sister Exister".
