Grub Street Comes To Town

New York Magazine’s Grub Street is going national, launching Sunday in five new markets including Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia. It’s a heady sign of the times that Philadelphia was chosen above food cities like New Orleans, Washington DC and Portland.

Kirsten Henri, who has been lending a guiding hand at Foobooz for the last year and a half, will be writing the Philadelphia version of Grub Street.

I’m very happy for Kirsten and much like when she was writing regularly for Foobooz, I will be eagerly awaiting her posts.

Philadelphia’s tide of food blogs has risen again and we’re all the richer for it.
