Find & share great dishes, not just restaurants.
Find whatever you're craving, see what's good at any restaurant and learn what foodspotters, friends and experts love wherever you go.
Just when we think we’ve heard it all, another astounding, delectable dish pops up and teaches us that there is more food in this world than one person can know. To celebrate that fact, and to push ourselves to learn more and try everything, we’re starting a new feature—Dish of the Day.
How will we go about finding all the worthy dishes? With your help, of course! All you need to nominate the next Dish of the Day feature is just the proper hashtag, #Dishoftheday, and a Foodspotting URL! That’s it.
TWITTER: Tweet a Foodspotting link and #DishoftheDay with your nomination.
FACEBOOK: Post a link of the dish on our Facebook wall.
TUMBLR: Tumble your Dish of the Day nomination on Tumblr and use #DishoftheDay.
INSTAGRAM: Next time you Instagram a particularly worthy #food image, nominate it as #DishoftheDay.
PINTEREST: When you’re pinning food to boards on Pinterest, add a #DishoftheDay to the description to nominate something noteworthy.
GOOGLE+: Share the Foodspotting link on Google+ and tag it as #DishoftheDay.
Not one for social networks? Then just let us know anytime in this handy Google Form.
We’ll feature a Dish of the Day twice a week, so keep your eyes peeled and send the good stuff our way. Com’mon, let’s celebrate food discovery with a Dish of the Day—spectacular new dishes for you to crave.

You don't have to ask us twice to go check out good food, good wine, and top San Francisco chefs and restaurants - twist our arm, why don't you. We had the great pleasure of attending the SF Chefs Grand Tasting Tent earlier in the month, which boasts a superb lineup of the SF Bay Area food scene. The festivities surrounding SF Chefs start every year at the end of July and are designed to showcase the city's food and wine talent.
Our only problem was we made the rookie move of eating breakfast. Have no fear - we did not let a slightly full stomach stop us from enjoying delicious samplings from the likes of Credo, La Mar, Murray Circle, Viognier and much more. The event was bustling and there was a solid vibe of excitement buzzing through the canopy. All the vendors clearly had as much fun as the attendees did. We even caught glimpses of Celebrity Chefs Martin Yan and Marcus Samuelsson.
We highly recommend checking out SF Chefs next year if you get the chance. And for your continued SF Chefs fix, follow SF Chefs on Foodspotting to get a taste of the great food involving participating restaurants outside of the event.
You may already know that we think food and travel go pretty well together, which is why we're thrilled Contiki Vacations has joined Foodspotting to share their recommendations around the globe.
Contiki hosts tours for young travelers around the world, and offers experiences filled with sightseeing and culture in over 40 countries. We're definitely keeping an eye on more dishes recommended by this well-traveled bunch.

The sun setting over the crowd at GoogaMooga.
Last weekend, the stars aligned at the first ever Great GoogaMooga food and music festival in Brooklyn's beautiful Prospect Park. Though the lines were long, they only attested to the fact that good food, chefs, restaurants and bands, like The Roots and Hall & Oates, plus the chance to spend a beautiful Spring day with friends will always draw an enthusiastic crowd.
Hard at work.
To get you guys in the Foodspotting spirit, we teamed up with the Great GoogaMooga on two fun contests. Huge thanks to everyone who came out to say hi, spot food and spend two gloriously sunny afternoons with us!
NYC Foodspotting ambassador Meng goes for it.

Our Orlando Foodspotting ambassador Julius was in town!
