  • Hey, Brad Murano here - I am addicted to crazy good food and all that is associated with its preparation, presentation, and consumption. I'm based in Dallas, but eat wherever necessary.
    Rather than traditional criticism, I will feature dining topics and destinations that interest me, as well as my "in-the-moment" food photography. I spend my discretionary income on food and drink, and once in a while I get comped.

    I also do other stuff...
