Profile Information

Menu Network, Inc
Discovering new food, Discovering new wines, Making Friends, Networking, Deals, Other
For ten years I dined and wrote my way throughout Europe and Asia before returning to the United States. Despite the controversy in our country, or perhaps because of it, I believe America is the best place to live on the planet! So we returned home and set about merging passion, skill, and knowledge into Menu Network, Inc., a national restaurant directory and hub for Everyday Diners. It is a place where reviews are respected and yappers take a step back; a place where creativity, excitement and brand of individual restaurants and restaurateurs can be uniquely displayed.
Years in the Industry
A lifetime's worth and daily gaining more.

Just wanted to let you know that I have changed the name of the Portland Food Network to the Pacific NorthWest Food Network. I wanted to broaden the scope and geography of it all. There is a lot more going on than just Portland/Oregon. Invite your friends to the group and start posting. (I know it says portlandfoodnetwork, but I could not change that part)


Come join and make it the best Group on FOHBOH!

Hello Kathleen & Happy New Year!

My company offers a service that allows restaurants a simple and hassle-free way to offer takeout ordering online from their web site (and our site). Looking at your network - I thought perhaps we could collaborate where you could offer online ordering as part of your network in addition to your current services. I'm sure there are a number of ways how our respective services could complement each other.

If you have any interest in discussing the possibilities - please drop me a line.
