Foodie Finds is our unique series of Best Places to Eat in different cities around the world.


It arose from my love of great food in Seattle - I couldn't stop writing about the great food we'd eaten there! I expanded it to Minneapolis, and then St. Paul - also great food cities, with a plethora of fantastic food options!


We started asking members of for their best places to eat, and the Foodie Finds series was officially underway. Now, we have Foodie Finds for many cities in the United States, as well as some from overseas. Heading to Chicago? Never fear! Touring California? Yes, we have some great Foodie Finds in Marin County. Touring Scotland by car? That's in there, too.


Would you like to publish a Foodie Finds article? We ask that you highlight the top 5 or 7 Best Places to Eat in a city. Try to tell us about the most unique, inexpensive, or off-the-beaten-path restaurants that a visitor to your city would love to find.

    I have eaten pizza in many states and several countries, but the very best pizza I've eaten anywhere comes from next door to our condo in Lexington, Michigan.  Smackwater Jack's has a Smackwater Special that will make your tastebuds jump for joy. The crust is as good as the homemade bread your grandmother used to make and the sauce has a slightly sweet but sophisticated taste.  It makes visiting Lexington worthwhile.
