Each year, food magazines like Bon Appétit, Eater, and Food and Wine come out with some sort of “best restaurants” list. Reporters spend months on the road eating, writing, and researching to develop their picks—so we picked out ten of our favorites from those lists to create the ultimate foodie roadtrip. The list includes bakeries, casual restaurants, and fancier, four-course-meal type restaurants. If you like good food, this is the trip for you.
Try the: Yum Mee (egg noodles with shrimp, squid, and pork); fried gizzards; and mok rice cake.
Try the: Elysian sour cocktail; baked gulf oysters; and grilled beef shoulder tender.
The food here changes daily, but expect food “rooted in classic French technique,” using “regional, heritage ingredients.”
The food served here also changes regularly with “what the region’s producers provide,” but has some overlap. If you go, try the: buckwheat crepe with Bear Creek Farm beef; spring onion buttermilk cheddar biscuits; and hickory smoked wings.
Try the: pork belly buns; mushroom ramen; and caramelized white chocolate pie.
Try the: New England clam chowder; Maine lobster stew; and Eventide brown butter lobster roll.
Try the: almond croissant; lemon pistachio cake; and the chorizo, aioli and comte on sourdough.
Try the: carciofi e tonno; reginette verde con astice e grappa; and anatra.
The meat menu varies daily, but if you can, try the: beef birria quesataco; mole tacos; and aguja plate.
Try the: chopped brisket breakfast taco; The G.O.A.T. (flour and corn tortilla with queso, brisket, pulled pork, and guacamole); and sliced pork belly taco.
