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.
These days, I freelance stories about a variety of subjects, including food, dining and nutrition, for Tallahassee Magazine, 850 business magazine, Influence magazine, the Miami Herald 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.
I hope you’ll help me, and you, grow with it. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
P. S. I dine anonymously, and at my own expense and I don’t have financial ties to any restaurants.

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.
Thank you so much!
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.
Thanks so much Mary!
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.
Thank you so much Joe! I appreciate this!
