About Dallas Food Nerd

Editors Rory and Elysa Ellis

Like most good stories, Food Nerd started around a table of wonderful food. 

In Dallas on Valentine’s Day weekend (2011), two social-mediaites (Elysa & Rory) – and Food Nerd editors – were invited to go on a dine around tour of five fabulous Dallas restaurants. They spent the day with several wonderful food bloggers, indulging in chocolate and souffles. While they both already had blogs and other social media credentials on their virtual resumes, they felt like an official food blog was in order. Check out the full Dallas Food Nerd website here.

Since then, we’ve expanded Food Nerd to multiple major cities!

Today, as a community, we are reviewing restaurants, trying kitchen gadgets, and drooling over food photos. If you have a food-get in touch
