Here’s your chance to write a culinary love letter for our new CityEats series.

What's the absolute best thing to eat in your city or neighborhood, and where do locals go to get it? Participate in our new CityEats series!

We're soliciting odes to your favorite, iconic local dishes, and the restaurants and cafes that make your city feel like home. Write us a one-paragraph love letter about the one food everyone who lives in or visits your city must try. Find the entry form here.

Our editors will select the best entries and eight lucky winners will receive a $50 gift card to order food from a delivery service that services local restaurants. A selection of entries will also be published on CityLab. By entering, you’ll also be signed up for our newsletter. The contest ends on November 1, 2016. Read the full rules here.
