I was recently in Chicago, which I knew to be a serious food town, but I hadn't had the time to plan my meals and for lunch I found myself a little stuck. We went to Frontera twice! But we were interested in the charming, unique stuff too... I found that what I really needed was an on-the-go guide that I could rely on to tell me what were the best restaurants near me at any time. Or farmers markets or other food lover haunts, for that matter. My husband and I love to be food tourists!
Like most seriouseats fans, I've come to trust this community in particular like no other food loving community for advice. Would be neat to be guided by the same community while on the go.
I'm headed to Portland, which I know to be a serious foodie town, at the end of July and need some recommendations. What must I not miss? I like to eat anything and everything.
And what's the name of that fab pizza place?
I'm coming to make my annual pilgramage to NY, where I used to live before I moved to Atlanta and fell out of touch with the good places to go in NY! I need some recommendations of good spots to meet friends for coffee/treats, and/or a glass of wine in my afternoons. I imagine I'll be spending most of my time on the UWS and the soho/west village/meatpacking area. Faves?
I'm heading to Florence in the next week and have been building up a deficit of calories in anticipation! Can anyone recommend some hidden gem spots where we can find really good authentic food? And do we need reservations?

I'm heading to Toledo OH for a New Year's eve wedding and have one additional night to eat (Sunday, the 30th). My family is a bunch of New York foodies who need some good food to help us forget the cold! Anyone have a "can't miss" spot in Toledo?
