When I started this blogging journey as The Black Dress Traveler in 2008, I never could have imagined all of the fabulous people and experiences it would bring into my life. But as I grow and evolve, it seems only natural that my blog should do the same. After all, six years is practically a lifetime in the blogosphere!
Moving forward, The Black Dress Traveler will focus primarily on restaurants, food, wine, and spirits - with a special emphasis on my hometown of New York City. As a native New Yorker, I'll admit to sometimes taking the Big Apple for granted but the world flocks here for a reason - there's no place like this crazy & creative town.
The NYC culinary scene is more vibrant & diverse than ever. Everyday I am impressed by the chefs, restaurateurs, mixologists, and winemakers that I meet and I want to share those stories. I need to share those stories. As the daughter of a professional chef and passionate eater, I feel that I've been preparing for this all my life.
Truly, the story of what we eat and drink is the ultimate travel story. French wines, Italian pastas,and Southern soul food are all a unique reflection of a place and its people. When I travel, the story of those destinations will be told from a culinary perspective.
Thank you readers! I look forward to sharing this next chapter with you. Be sure to say hello, if you see me out dining in my little black dress. And, if you want to send over a cocktail, make it a Manhattan!
