We eat. We tweet.

New Times food critic Michele Laudig is working all the angles for you, Phoenix -- including Twitter, where you can follow her cravings. She's easy to find: @michelelaudig. 

We've been on Twitter for a while now, and in between the tweets about Iran and Mark Sanford's email and Jon and Kate Plus Eight, we've noticed quite a few Phoenix foodies popping up with recommendations. That's all well and fine, till someone tips us off that @soandso is quietly pimping those restaurants for pay, or that @suchandsuch is really someone else.

We promise top-notch recommendations with no strings attached from Ms. Laudig. And hey, she never leaves crumbs.
