Whenever I run into an Eater fan, whether at a party, on a plane, at a meeting, or in a bar, chances are he or she will say, "I love Eater’s maps. I use them whenever I travel." Even as we’ve expanded the scope and depth of Eater’s mission over the years, people return again and again for guidance on where to eat in dozens of cities across the U.S.
Recently, we’ve leaned into this utility by expanding travel coverage beyond our North American city sites. We’ve increased our output of international maps — culminating in the frequently updated Guide to the Entire World — and launched thorough, unconventional, and award-winning travel guides to Mexico City, Paris, and Walt Disney World.
And today we’re launching an entire travel portal.
Eater Travel will be a go-to resource for international guides, maps, essays, videos, and packages. It debuts now — presented by The Marriott Rewards® Premier Credit Card from Chase — with a massive look at the dining, drinking, and shopping scenes of Tokyo. Emily Yoshida takes on theme cafes, Matt Buchanan knows where to get the best coffee, and Yukari Sakamoto offers the ultimate guide to department-store food halls. Here’s the full thing.
Later this week we’ll launch the first episode in a new road trip series, featuring brother-and-sister restaurateur duo Bricia and Fernando Lopez of Guelaguetza in Los Angeles. Also: Guides (from on-the-ground locals) to where you should be eating in Florence, Madrid, Bogota, San Juan, São Paulo, and where you should next take your afternoon tea in London.
