Jeff Mauro loves to eat. Sure, this sounds like a spectacularly obvious observation considering this is the same person who hosts two shows on the Food Network (Sandwich King and $24 in 24), but I can personally vouch for his enthusiasm. Check out his picks for where to eat in Elmwood Park. More

Where New Vegetarian Roy Choi Eats in Los Angeles

Erin Zimmer 4 comments

When Roy Choi recently announced that he's going vegetarian, the food world freaked out a little. Wait, the same dude who made Korean short rib sliders and pork belly tacos a thing? The Korean-American chef who started the Kogi truck back in 2008 (there's now a fleet of five trucks plus four brick-and-mortar restaurants, and he's working on a memoir, Spaghetti Junction) shared the news on his blog, Riding Shotgun. He wrote: "Animals be talking to me. They told me... stop. Stop, Roy. Please." Choi told us about his favorite spots for meatfree eating in Los Angeles. More

Every other week we like to bring you another Neighborhood Guide, which details the places local chefs and food writers actually frequent in their on 'hoods.

This week, Phil Rubino, the new chef de cuisine at Moderno, walks us through Wrigleyville. More

Chicago Johnny Auer 3 comments

A few weeks ago, chef Kevin Hickey gave us his neighborhood guide to Bridgeport (who could forget his account of kicking Bill Veeck's wooden leg). Today the torch gets passed on to Julia Kramer, the associate food editor and restaurant critic at Time Out Chicago, where she has worked since 2008. More

Serious Eats Neighborhood Guides: Kevin Hickey's Bridgeport

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

Chef Kevin Hickey may spend his days in the Gold Coast, cooking elegant comfort food at his brand new restaurant, Allium, but after service is over, he returns to Bridgeport, the same neighborhood he grew up in. As you can imagine, this makes him one of the best guides possible to the South Side neighborhood, because not only has opinions on where to eat, but he also knows the families behind the establishments.

Serious Eats Neighborhood Guides: Eric Ripert's Midtown West

New York Allegra Ben-Amotz 11 comments

A New Yorker since crossing the Atlantic over 20 years ago, Eric Ripert has established himself as one of the top French chefs in the United States—and the world. At the age of 29, he earned a four-star rating from the New York Times in his first year as executive chef of Le Bernadin. He soon became a part-owner of the restaurant, where he has received four James Beard Awards and three Michelin stars, three years in a row. Ripert is also the Chair of City Harvest's Food Council, and somehow still finds time to enjoy a good bowl of ramen close to home, in Midtown Manhattan. More

Serious Eats Neighborhood Guides: Adam and Max's Astoria

New York Max Falkowitz 27 comments

Astoria is a friendly, comfortable, and affordable place to live, but above all else, it's a place to eat. The fare probably isn't what you grew up with, but it doesn't take long to start eating like a true blue Greek/Italian/Egyptian/Serbian/Latin American/who knows what else. Seriously, the amount of ethnic food here is staggering. Go forth with a sense of adventure and you'll be richly rewarded with a polyglot dining scene growing in every direction at once. More
