Meet Our Localeurs

Boston with Chelsea

@chowdownusa

Hi there, I’m Chelsea. I’m a Boston local and the author of chowdownusa.com. I specialize in seafood, gluten-free options and anything that satisfies a sweet tooth!
  • CITRUS & SALT

    From its pink walls, to their stringed lights and brightly colored Mexican-inspired murals donning the walls, @CitrusSaltBos in Boston's Back Bay may be the GOAT of photographic venues!

  • BURRO BAR

    From the short rib double stack to the gulf shrimp "Diablo" to the roasted cauliflower with squash and apple habanero salsa, there's something for everyone to “taco bout” at @burrobrookline!

Mexico City with Max

@gastronautadf

Hola! I’m Max. I’m a Mexican-American screenwriter best known as The Gastronauta. I believe good taste is an adventure, so I hunt for the best experiences, bites and libations, from street food to fine dining.  
  • DON’T FORGET STREET FOOD

    Tacos are the quintessential, humble Mexican street food. Take a stroll in downtown Mexico City and pick from tons of street vendors. If the line is long, you know it’s good.

  • TAQUERIA ORINOCO

    The menu is short, the music is quirky, the crowd is hip, but mainly because they're absurdly delicious! Order their version of pastor on freshly made flour tortillas, the beans and the chicharrón taco, which is a glorious, fatty piece of heaven.

  • TAQEURIA LOS COCUYOS

    Los Cocuyos is among the best you can eat in downtown Mexico City. There are many meats to choose from, but suadero and lengua (beef tongue) are especially good here.

Providence with Nora

@noravarcho

Oh, hey! I’m Nora. I’m a student, photographer and creative living in NYC. But I spend a lot of time in Rhode Island too. I spend much of my time exploring parks, coffee shops, vistas. I also never fail to get a thrill when tourists ask me directions.  
  • TALLULAH’S TAQUERIA

    Stroll through picturesque Providence and stop at Tallulah's Taqueria, a chef-driven, authentic Chicano spot serving fresh, local and delicious Mexican food.

  • GURNEY’S NEWPORT RESORT & MARINA

    Gurney's may be known for its Montauk outpost, but there's a reason the upscale beach resort landed in Rhode Island. Grab the fish tacos at the waterside restaurant and watch the sun set over the Newport Bridge.

Seattle with Cate

@cate.smithson

Hey! I’m Cate. I’m Localeur's head of content by day. I have a background in journalism and creating and editing content for the web. I’ve also written and edited content for a number of online publications, including The Daily Beast, ABC News and The Huffington Post.
  • EL CHUPACABRA

    If you're looking to enjoy your tacos with a side of Vitamin D on a sunny Seattle day, you'd probably better head over to either of @chupacabra's two locations ASAP. This grungy spot is as much a bar as it is a restaurant, and the only thing better than a michelada on the patio is two micheladas on the patio.

  • TACOS CHUKIS

    The only bad thing about it? The sand-dollar-sized, street-style tacos at @tacoschukis are so good you'll never feel like you've ordered enough of 'em. If you're really starving during a night out on Capitol Hill, order a baby burrito as well and you just might get your fill. Oh, and you definitely should add guac and grilled pineapple to everything.

  • GRACIA

    When I want tacos that remind me of my homestate of Texas, I head to @graciaseattle. This dateworthy spot is great for the chicken tinga. Wash it down with a spicy margarita, then take a stroll down Ballard Avenue.
