i thought the concept was cool. it’s a good social event that you can meet people from the same town or just a good night out with friends or family. you also get to try signature dishes and meet the creators of these dishes from four different restaurants in one night. the event was well organized, but as a food event, i think the food could’ve been stronger. ‘some of the food wasn’t really representative of the restaurant or the town’ as one of the dishcrawler said.

you can check dishcrawl out @ http://dishcrawl.com/boston/ for future events.
