Eater Boston is now officially up and running! We're here to dish out the freshest coverage of the Boston restaurant, dining and nightlife scene and to bring you the news of one of the coolest food cities in the country: no, THE coolest food city in the country! We'll also be glad to show the rest of the world that there's more to Boston than cream pie (not that we have anything against pie).
Eater Boston is excited to be joining the Eater National family of sites, including New York, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Miami, Austin, Houston, Dallas, DC, Portland (OR), Seattle, Atlanta and New Orleans. And a special hello to Curbed Boston, which also launched today.
So here's a little about me, the editor of Eater Boston, Aaron Kagan. Up till now I've been working as a freelance food journalist and writing for local publications like the Boston Globe, STUFF Magazine Boston, the Boston Phoenix, and others from farther off including Smithsonian.com and Meatpaper. I've also taught food writing at the Boston Center for Adult Education, and before I started writing about food I toured the country with a sketch comedy group I co-founded. My years on the road gave me the chance to sample both the best and the worst food the U.S. has to offer, and my stomach was always happy to come back to Boston. And now I'm proud to serve as your Eater editor.
But enough about me, let's talk about you.
While I hope Eater Boston will be your one-stop shop for all things food and drink in this wonderful city, we won't be able to do it without you, the faithful readers: reader input, comments, rants and raves are our lifeblood. So whether you're friends with someone who works at this, that or the other restaurant and heard the chef de cuisine there quit after refusing to serve mislabeled fish or you just saw a ridiculous piece of signage in front of your neighborhood Dunkies - or anything else - let us know. Nothing is too small or too weird. We love it all.
Meanwhile, Eater Boston will be bringing you all the news on restaurant openings, closings and other happenings while also rounding up the best of the local food media, independent blogs and national scoops. But please do not hesitate to hit up our tipline - firstname.lastname@example.org - if you come across anything you think we want to know.
Help us help you. It's going to be a hoot.
