New York

Our writers eat far and wide to bring you news you can use, profiles you’ll devour, interviews you’ll enjoy, and recipes you can trust. Based in NYC, we’re centered on our home city, layered with reporting from Miami, Los Angeles, and bucket-list travel destinations. An offshoot of Tasting Table — the first generation restaurant newsletters founded in 2008 — we’ve delivered restaurant news, features, how-tos, recipes, and videos you’ve enjoyed for well over a decade.

Today, we’ve swapped a publication that required ad money for one that’s nurtured by community support on Substack. We feel it’s essential to help propel a restaurant revival, to walk readers through who’s doing what that we’re wowed by. We want to chronicle how restaurants continue to shape our communities — how we live, eat, travel, and navigate our neighborhoods, post-pandemic. We want you to feel invested in and connected to this community of restaurants, chefs, makers, bartenders, and beyond. We will spotlight equitable workplaces, industry pioneers, and the internationalism that has always been a part of the food world. We’ll go beyond storytelling, narratives, and reporting through video, audio, and Substack’s online discussion within our community, often with special guests.

Broken Palate is a growing community that cares about the food and restaurant industry. We want to support beloved places and new spots, from the scrappy corner dive bar to the burgeoning city restaurant group. It’s a place where we share who and what we love in our neighborhoods and travels, what inspires us, and what we value, through the lens of food, cooking, and hospitality.
