Who the Heck are Antonio and Blanca?
Antonio is a complete and utter geek. Antonio is a NY pizza expert (loves Totonno's above all). He is a huge fan of French Chardonnay (although from time to time he cheats on France with Sonoma). He considers himself a member of the Stark Clan. Antonio believes that eating out should be like the theater; made up of three shows a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the same way that the theater is not just about the individual performers, eating out isn't just about food: everything has to come together for the perfect dining experience, like a symphony of sensation.
Blanca never though she would end up in technology since she was more of your liberal arts major (don't ask her about black and red figure vases, she'll go on for hours). While she is not a gastronaut, she has been known to snack on balut, snake, and brains and a bunch of other things that creep out her friends. If you want to get on her sunny side, take her to Sushi Yasuda (or Per Se). Blanca sides with the Lannisters. For her, an exceptional dining experience consists of three factors: feeling welcome from the time one comes in until the meal is done; inspirational food, and good value for money whether she is spending $10 or $1,000,000.
FriendsEAT was founded in 2005 because Antonio was sick of hearing about Blanca being hungry! They wanted a place where they could share recipes, talk about their favorite (and least favorite) restaurants, look at delicious pictures of food (mmm.....food porn), and make friends.
