Serena grew up thirty minutes outside of New York City and has lived in Manhattan for the past 12 years. A strict follower of the “NYC Diet” of convenience, hole-in-the-wall joints and fine dining, she is on constant lookout for the next hidden gem.  Her family learned of her passion for food early on, when she finished her baby food in record time (6 months old), woke her mother up for a midnight banana (2 years old), and came home from school with her lunchbox full of Jello (6 years old).  Serena first created a DIY pizza tour itinerary for visiting friends four years ago.  She has since organized food tours for friends and family, focusing on cuisine as varied as soul food, cupcakes,  vegetarian dim sum, and allergy-aware establishments.

The apple rating system on this site reflects my true, unbiased opinion of a self-sponsored dining experience at a specific establishment.  In rare cases, I’m invited by a dining establishment to have a sponsored meal  – in such cases I disclose the “free meal” status in my write-up and do not assign a rating.
