About Steve Mirsky
I firmly believe that distinctive cuisine and life-changing travel experiences are best savored by those driven by curiosity rather than solely on the recommendations of wine connoisseurs, gourmands, and jet setters. Classic hotels, signature boutique properties, and epic dining experiences provide some of the best opportunities for an authentic introduction to new cultures and cuisine. I share those unique moments when everything clicks at gastrotraveling.com and regularly contribute to Virtual Tourist,The Daily Meal, &Tripatini.com, I also help hotels, inns, & B&Bs build their own content strategies that best promote direct online booking at directhotelbookingsolutions.com.
