Every weekday, we're highlighting a blogger we think you ought to know about. We can’t be everywhere at once, so we look to these passionate eaters, cooks and writers to keep us tapped into every facet of the food world. Consider this a way to get to know a blog’s taste buds, because, well, you should.
Who: Andrew Steinthal and Chris Stang, of Immaculate Infatuation
There are a few things you should know about Immaculate Infatuation. We're not the blog that is going to tell you where to find the best dim sum in Queens, or how to make a killer pierogi. There are some really great sites that cover that, and it's just not our thing. We also won’t be using words like "toothsome" to describe the food we eat. That kind of professional food critic jargon is best left to the New York Times. We’re here for when you need a fail-proof recommendation for a "First/Early in the Game Date," "Girls' Night Out" or some "Action at the Bar." It's a big city, and people have a lot of choices. We just want to make sure you don't spend your hard-earned money on a meal that sucks.
Since our launch, we have grown fast and have had a few lucky breaks. We're now producing original video content that brings our love of music and food together, like taking a rapper to a raw food restaurant or inviting a young rock band from Texas to evaluate BBQ in Brooklyn. Life has become quite a bit busier since this whole thing started, and we’re enjoying the ride. At the end of the day, we're still the ones that our friends turn to when in need of a good restaurant recommendation ... we just have a lot more friends now.
