    Attention foodies: A top Massachusetts politician wants the state to regain its status as one of America's leading culinary destinations.

    Democratic House Speaker Robert DeLeo told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday that lawmakers intend to create a task force with an appetite for promoting the region's restaurants to an international audience.

    DeLeo says the task force will include prominent chefs and marketing experts, and will be supported by $2 million in new state tourism funding.

    While saying the Boston area is home to many outstanding restaurants, DeLeo suggests it's been overlooked nationally as a top dining destination. He also notes that some well-known establishments have closed in recent years.
