Today, we will be introducing Boston to our existing lineup of city-level content, currently putting us at eleven local blogs. Whenever our small editorial and web teams gather together to discuss which new cities will be introduced on Foodable, there’s always one city in the bunch that individuals are drawn to more than others. This usually stems from a personal tie to the city, and Boston is admittedly mine. Let it be known that we don’t introduce cities based on personal favorites — the city needs to prove its culinary clout, of course — but growing up near Boston makes this addition that much sweeter.

If you’re not too familiar with the northeast, we are known for our sense of community. Hell, just look at how many of us stood by the Red Sox throughout the years. This loyalty has undoubtedly sifted into the Boston culinary scene, as well. With a new law recently passed that enables local farmers to actually sell their produce, this tie between community and food is becoming even more apparent. From its history ( perfect for brand storytelling) to its pulse on creating an experience, Boston has all the potential to become NYC Jr.

I honestly hope you enjoy taking in all that Boston, as well as our other cities — Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland (PDX), San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. — have to offer. Each brings its own unique flair to the game, which influences the big, national picture of what food and restaurants have come to be in the U.S. and beyond. And, as always, if you’ve got an ear to the ground in any of the cities we cover and would like to be considered as a Contributor (blogger and/or video correspondent), feel free to submit here.
