It appears as if Miami is starting to be taken seriously as a food city, along with the likes of New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and many others. Award-winning restaurants and innovative chefs are turning gourmands’ heads throughout the world, and our unique tropical environment that yields year-long exotic produce, as well as our Latin American flavor, is grabbing the culinary world’s attention. It’s not surprising, then, to see that national foodie websites are starting to expand into South Florida. Today, Miami welcomes Tasting Table, a website that prides itself on offering readers unique, insightful information on the city’s best restaurants, bars, and food trends. Editor in Chief Scott Hocker explains that “rather than focusing on the next restaurant or bar that’s opening under overhyped conditions, Tasting Table works hard to tell provocative stories about the people, places and products that make Miami a unique place to live, eat and drink.”

With the invasion of user-driven review sites like Yelp! and Urban Spoon that have simultaneously democratized and made it increasingly difficult to get reliable dining information, it is comforting to know that Tasting Table still believes that a knowledgeable editor is invaluable to the discerning foodie. That’s why Trina Sargalski has been chosen to helm Tasting Table in Miami with her experience as a reporter and producer for WLRN-Miami Herald News and Under the Sun. Chances are that if you’ve ever listened to NPR (National Public Radio), you already know Sargalski pretty well. In addition to her journalistic experience, she is also devoted and passionate gourmande.
