As a Chicago-based writer and editor, I’ve been covering the local dining scene for 10 years. Elizabites is a casual food journal/diary/photo gallery of sorts, including everything from my hunt for the best red velvet cupcake in Chicago to on-the-fly interviews with top chefs around town. You’ll see the occasional review of everything from hot dogs to hot restaurants, but I also feature my favorite signs, tabletops and random spottings (cool door handles, inspiring signs, interesting menus). Take a shot at the mystery spot posts for guest blogging opportunities, or stop in a restaurant and order what they’re “not known for,” (I’ll be covering those too.) Coverage tends to hover in and around Chicago (and I am just a bit biased towards West Town/Wicker Park/East Village) but I will keep eating and blogging my way through future travels, from Milwaukee (more likely) to Milan (not as likely). Questions, comments, suggestions, general observations..give a holla.
