The days when one needed a guidebook to navigate a new city or foreign land are long gone (thanks, Internet?). But ever since travelers began trading their Fodor’s and Frommer’s in for TripAdvisor and Yelp, finding a new locale’s most authentic and unique offerings has become only more challenging. As we’ve learned time and again, the cream doesn’t always rise to the top when it comes to crowd-sourced recommendations.
Just as Short Stack is a reaction to the minefield of online recipes, the WILDSAM Field Guides tune out the noise and connect us with a city’s creative denizens. Since its 2012 launch, WILDSAM has become our most-rewarding resource when we’ve visited one of the cities they’ve covered to date (Nashville, Austin, San Francisco, Detroit, New Orleans and Brooklyn).
So we were honored when WILDSAM founder Taylor Bruce asked Short Stack to create a map of our favorite restaurants for its new Brooklyn edition. Order yourself a copy now and check it out!
