About Food Vixen


Greetings everyone! My name is Melissa Rodriguez, I live in NYC and I am a food writer in what is popularly known as the  culinary capital of the world.

New York City is rich and diverse in culture. Tasty varieties of cuisine from all corners of the world compressed into every nook & cranny of Manhattan and the outer boroughs. I want to experience all of it, try everything. I strive to learn more about the world and true art of a scrumptious meal put together with love & passion.

I enjoy learning about food from different cultures, and have an open mind policy when it comes to cuisine (I am willing to try anything at least once). Food is sensuous, as it tantalizes each of our senses. Colors, textures, aromas, like the crackling sound of chicken wings as they sizzle in a deep fryer, flavors and fragrances that bring a sense of nostalgia. Food is life, and we crave it. I am so thankful that we have it in abundance for us to devour at will. Food is a celebration of unity.  The art of a comforting meal, a sexy meal, a healthy meal, is a true blessing. This is my journey into the senses.

    Melissa Rodriguez,

    You’ve feature some great reviews of some fantastic looking food on your blog. Since cuisines are ever evolving the “foodie” experience is an ongoing process and your blog is a great resource to keep people informed. I came across your site while looking for local restaurants. My name is Steven Greenberg and I help with the marketing for 230 Fifth (http://www.230-fifth.com/), a well known restaurant in New York. Our services are among the nest offered in the big apple. I love your blog and what you are doing with it and wanted to see if you would be interested in featuring a guest blog post from me! I could write it on a number of topics all which would relate to your site and also attract the attention of new visitors. If you are interested please let me know, hopefully we can work something out that is mutually beneficial.

    Regards,
    Steven Greenberg
