Gay food blogger gives ‘Savory Exposure’ to ATL eateries

Broderick Smylie, 36, has lived in Atlanta for 11 years, living throughtout the metro area from Norcross to Conyers to Decatur to Midtown. He's always enjoyed food and has a special fondness for Asian and Mexican restaurants on Buford Highway and in Duluth ― and, he says, don't knock OTP dining until you've tried it.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Smylie moved to Atlanta to escape the snow and cold winters.

“It gets colder here than I first envisioned,” he says.

Smylie said he began writing his own food blog, Savory Exposure,  several years ago after following other food blogs he admired ― Tami Hardeman's “Running with Tweezers,” Hardy Wallace of “Dirty South Wine” and Matt from the former blog “Rowdy Food.”
