Bridgetown Bites is written by Meg Cotner, a food loving freelance writer based in Portland, OR, and author of Food Lovers’ Guide to Queens. I like eating flavorful food, cooking from both recipes and by improvisation, growing tomatoes on my back patio, and drinking coffee every day. I’m also a breast cancer survivor.

I’ve eaten good food throughout the US, Mexico, Montenegro, The Netherlands, Belgium, and the glorious borough of Queens, which is kind of like traveling the world—Colombia, Greece, Brazil, and Uzbekistan, for starters. I make a point to explore my city, eat at new/new-to-me restaurants, and support my favorite haunts. If life gave me lemons, I’d probably ferment them.
