My Mission

My mission: find the best local restaurants and entertainment in the Des Moines area.

I’m a native Des Moines-ian and I still haven’t seen or done everything that truly makes Des Moines unique.

My goal is to keep connected with the Des Moines community by hitting up restaurants and events to give you the inside scoop – or “the dish” – on what Des Moines has to offer. I’ll post my thoughts, photos and tips/tricks as I explore the greater Des Moines area.


What do you love about Des Moines?

Do you have any restaurants or events you like to hit up in the Des Moines area? Please let me know know – I’d love to give them a try! Contact me at: Emily@TheDishOnDesMoines.com.
