Half a roasted marrowbone drifts atop the caldo de res that Diana Dávila serves on Sundays at her Chicago restaurant Mi Tocaya Antojeria. The dish, large enough to feed three or four, is a tribute to the Mexican beef stew her father made when she was growing up. It emerges from the restaurant’s kitchen as a vision of hominess — bobbing hunks of meat and chunky vegetables in a sky-blue pot, the kind of vessel that might be left over a low flame, its contents sustaining a family throughout the day.
Plenty has been written this year about the thrills and complications of Rene Redzepi’s Noma popup in the jungle of Tulum, Mexico. What no one appears to have discussed yet: the storms. Seven of them roiled the tropical skies during the restaurant’s nearly two-month run in April and May, and when wind and rain bore down on the open-air dining room — as it did the night I had dinner there — it sent the staff scurrying into well-rehearsed emergency mode.
It’s been said a million times, but it’s truer than ever: Dining is now a fundamental part of the cultural experience in America. My job, as Eater’s restaurant editor, is to study — more specifically, to devour — the nation’s culinary landscape as it constantly evolves. I crisscross the country almost nonstop, eating hundreds of meals annually to pinpoint the restaurants that not only serve remarkable meals but also define how we think about food and its meaning in our lives.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
