Alan Watts and Gennaro Pecchia are the Men Who Dine and their mission is to bring you inside the best and most authentic restaurants, bars, lounges and all things food related in their own unique way! They are not conventional restaurant critics, but rather, they are an underground foodie force – connecting with chefs, restaurants and events through social media, word of mouth and lots and lots of meals.

The world is now in the midst of a foodie revolution. The Men Who Dine text and tweet mid-meal, snapping endless pictures of their food, sharing the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of what they are eating and where they are eating it. Traditional dining experiences are simply passé. The Men Who Dine are a product of this new food revolution and they have transformed it into a cult following. Passion is the name of their game. They are professional eaters in a world of amateurs. Today, their opinion is sought after by thousands.

So what do they do? They actively seek out the greatest in food and eat their way through restaurants and events around the country. Each has a culinary background and are hooked up with and hooked into the best and brightest in food culture to inform their audience where the best eats are. If a restaurant makes it on their list of “Where We Dine,” it is certainly not to be missed!
