Weekly Travel Guide: I Left My Stomach in San Francisco with Alison Corbat

I’m happy to introduce our new weekly travel guide column by our latest addition Alison Corbat. For as long as she can remember, Alison has been passionate about food. She grew up traveling the exciting state of New Jersey with her family as they dined at various hidden gems that her mother had read about. She also spent her childhood begging to tag along on her parents’ trips to the supermarket, and then proceeding to drive them crazy as she shoveled her recommended purchases into their carts.

Now, several decades later and with a more sophisticated palate, she has expanded her culinary journeys to circle the globe and is here to provide you with weekly guides on some of her favorite dining destinations around the country. Each week she will profile a different U.S. city, bestowing her recommendations on how to eat like a local, where to find interesting ethnic treats, and more. The column will also include photographs to tantalize your appetites.
