Old Saw Mill Delicious Dust

As those who follow religiously know, Missus Tasty and I spent a week (two weeks for her) in Northern Italy a few months back. Amongst the small lake towns, tourist trap cities and true Italian ONLY villages we hit, Milano was the in and out point. We saved 2 days for a walk through the fashion...

Metropole • Cincinnati

  This week marks the launch of a campaign that’s been in the making for over a year. In that year I’ve become quite familiar with Cincinnati. There’s a lot of  Tasty that’s popping up all over town but my first trip still marks one of my favorite spots and killer...

Talk ain’t cheap but hotels could be

Traveling is a huge part of this blog. In order to find new food experiences we need to be in new places and meet new people. Par for the course includes eating some “crazy” things, discovering some off-beat places and letting your gut lead you through a new land. I can’t tell you...

Banga! Baby.

Ohh yeah that India trip. You may have been wondering what happened to all the morsels and stories we devoured when on our 2 week, hi-speed, meander through India last December. Well, they are coming. Their are just so many great meals and stories we’ve hardly had a second to put it all down...

Jim Haynes Supperclub • Paris

The above dish represents more than a tasty plate of home cooked food I consumed while in Paris. It’s a symbol of everything we stand for and write about. It signifies what drives us to explore and what comforts us most. In a word Dinnertime. We write about this a lot. It defines our...

Eating Cities 2013 Recap

We travelled more this year than last but to less cities with more frequency. That puts us in the frequent “local” category. One we just made up. Feel free to use that. The below list recaps the spots, dishes and people we indulged this past year. Some are repeats of 2012 and some...

Eating Barcelona

I could live here. That’s what I thought after my first visit to this city. Each subsequent visit always reenforces this desire. Barcelona’s bright culture, food, architecture and people can’t help but become infectious. In Barcelona the creativity is loose, curvy, spontaneous, random and...

Eating Madrid

Old. Spanish. Luxury! I was only in Madrid for 36 hours so every minute counted. I wanted to treat Missus Tasty to a little extra luxury for this leg of our Spanish vacation so I started with old world, Spanish luxury right from the airport with a private driver. He whisked us from the modern...

Eating Philadelphia

Ohh brother…ly love! Philly is a bit of a second home to us. It’s been that way ever since DJ RubyRube took up residence in the late 90’s and started summoning us down for his epic parties and subsequent eating adventures. This is back in the day when Steven Starr had only two...

Eating Detroit

Detroit Lives! You probably thought Detroit was dead or in coma BUT that’s the farthest thing from the truth. I landed at DTW with a few hours to spare before a meeting scheduled in Lansing. I decided to zoom into the city center and explore bit before heading out to the sticks. With in minutes...

Eating Columbus

It’s in Ohio. And it’s all about ice cream. I had a one day trip in Columbus, Ohio, a place I’d never been and didn’t think there would be much worth visiting. As it turns out there was a bunch of things that made the play side of this work trip very satisfying. The Bites Jeni’s...

Eating Cities

We’ve been to a lot of places, met a lot of people and ate a lot of food. The below map gives you an idea of the quantity we’re talking about. It occurred to us that, although volume makes for a well rounded traveller, it’s the quality of our experiences that is of more value to...

Eating San Francisco

I left my heart and confused my brain! San Francisco definitely has my heart. I consider it the only other place I have really lived other than NY. I sometimes dream of moving back for the landscape, weather and food. Unfortunately my hyper active, NYC brain quickly reminds me that I love NY for...

Eating Las Vegas

Sinning and loving it. This is a hard one to write. By know means will this even scratch the surface of what you can eat in Vegas. These days it’s a veritable who’s who of celebrity chef establishments competing for the attention of tourists rich and budget conscious. This trip had me locked...

Eating Montreal

Parlez vous manger! Possibly one of the greatest eating cities in the world, Montreal boasts tasty everywhere you look. The French influence makes things more decadent yet the Quebecois keeps it casual. Believe it or not this was my first time to Montreal. For a guy who has been to far flung...
