The list of big cities and their critical presence is especially interesting. I’ll add Omaha:
Status: I write weekly reviews and food stories for the Omaha World-Herald; we also employ a team of freelance writers that write both reviews and food stories. Rachel Grace writes regular reviews under the moniker “Fat in Omaha” at Omahype.com. Summer Miller, along with a number of freelancers, write food stories and notes for the Omaha Reader. There’s also Food and Spirits Magazine and edibleOmaha.
Food blogs: Gastronomic Fight Club (mostly active on Facebook now); Fat in Omaha; Food Me Omaha; Distilled Opinion; which mostly covers Iowa but now and again mentions Omaha; Stalk My Kitchen, a cooking and food blog.
Who else is out there covering Omaha food?
