10 of the Best Restaurants in Florence for The Guardian

Curious Appetite is at it again- eating way too much for the sake of important journalism! Hey, it’s a hard job but someone has got to do it!

This was one of my favorite commissions yet, not to mention one of the proudest moments in my career. While I mostly rag on Florence’s dining scene, I definitely come to her defense when people say “A Firenze si mangia male” perche’ e’ troppo turistica” (Food sucks in Florence thanks a lot to mass tourism). Yes, Florence’s tourism problem is getting out of hand and with very haphazard approaches towards addressing it, but there are indeed valid gems still worth eating at near Florence’s major attractions.

Link here for all you curious travelers:

Eating around Queens (NYC) with Meyhem Lauren (Vice Munchies)

 

Hey curious readers!

I’m currently traveling and a lot of new posts are brewing in this food obsessed brain of mine. I will be pouring over them once I return, stay tuned! In the meantime I wanted to share a past article I did for Vice Munchies, inspired by my last trip to NYC this past December 2016 (f*** is it Spring already?!)

I caught up with Rapper/Star of Viceland’s TV show F*** that’s Delicious, Meyhem Lauren to get a taste of Queens, NYC:

There are a few mantras I live by:

“There are only two mantras, yum and yuck, mine is yum.”― Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker (one of the greatest love stories I’ve ever read)

“Work is love made visible. And if you can’t work with love, but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work.” ― Kahlil Gibran

“The tortoise heard his taunting jeer, But still resolved to persevere, You may deride my awkward pace, But slow and steady wins the race.” The Tortoise and the Hare, Aesop

All which can explain my silence around these blog’s parts, not laziness I assure you! I’ve been incredibly busy, more busy than I’ve ever been: testing out eateries (yum) designing a new food tour in Bologna (love) and somehow magically meeting article deadlines (slow and steady wins the race).

If you are looking for the best restaurants in Florence, check out this guide I wrote for Eater, that I tortured myself over, from eating out to hours of writing, but eventually got it done:
