I’m Rochelle Koff, originally from Philly, lived most of my life in South Florida. Now, I’m proud to call Tallahassee — so green, so friendly, so much more sane — my home.

I’ve spent a lot of my life eating in restaurants.  I critiqued them for The Miami Herald for more than 20 years and was Broward County writer/editor for Zagat’s Miami/South Florida Restaurants  guides for eight years.

When I wasn’t eating, I was a reporter and editor at the Herald, the South Florida Sun Sentinel and, most recently, at the Miami Herald/Tampa Bay Times capital bureau.RKW Orleans 2015

These days, I write about food and dining for VisitTallahassee.com and freelance on a variety of subjects for Tallahassee Magazine, 850 business magazine and other publications.

And, of course, I write this blog. I want to eventually try every restaurant and experience every food trend in and around the Capital City.

Breaking bread together is one of our most social human activities, and I’m convinced that food is the key to knowing a place and its people.

Here in Tallahassee and the surrounding area, we may not have, in sheer numbers, the dining choices some other locales have, but there’s a very vibrant — and growing — food culture here, and an abundance of knowledgeable foodies.

I hope you’ll help me, and you, grow with it.  I welcome your comments and suggestions.

Let’s eat.

P. S. I dine anonymously, and at my own expense.

  1. This is an awesome web site! I’m so hungry! Who knew about Tallahassee? Now I do. If I’d only known when I used to visit on behalf of the AP. Totally cool Rochelle.

  2. This is a terrific site. User-friendly and chock full of information. I love the addition of recipes, something really different for a dining site. I can’t wait to visit Tallahassee again and try out some of these unique restaurants.

  3. This is a beautiful site, but most of all I like the uncluttered, clean look, the well written articles and the recipes. I especially like the fact that Rochelle pays for her own meals which allows her to be totally objective of the restaurants she reviews.
