“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done!” ― Vincent van Gogh, My Life & Love Are One
Returning to the Eternal City… and my favorite in the world, Roma (see “Wandering Traveler”)
You may have heard: I took on the job as Zagat Editor for San Francisco/Bay Area (sign up for the weekly Bay Area newsletter here; follow along on Twitter @ZagatSF where I post daily articles).
For one who marked up Zagat guides for NY, LA, Chicago and SF – and other food books, including my favorite, Patty Unterman’s San Francisco Food Lover’s Guide – with my own rating system and notes over 15 years ago, it’s special to be providing daily content for a site that I go way back with – one that focuses on the best dishes, drinks and tastes over “the news.” So I can do what I do best: hunt down and share best discoveries with you.

My multiple daily posts and articles mean I will have to shorten articles here at the Perfect Spot, though I don’t plan on discontinuing what has been my entrance into the food writing world since I launched the site back in 2007.
Because I am sharing so much of my knowledge on Zagat daily, I will link to some of those articles here so you can peruse the many new openings and places I am photoing and writing about.

As your personal concierge who tells it like a good friend would, I also create personalized itineraries: trips, meals, explorations (under “Services“).
