I’m a firm believer that local food should be part of every travel experience. So it makes sense that I’m recommending this Concierge.com article on local food specialties around the U.S. With suggestions such as lobster roll in Maine, banana pudding in Nashville, and green chile cheeseburgers in Santa Fe, it’s a delicious 21-destination list that might inspire you (it certainly did me) to try the local bests wherever you travel this summer.
Also included on the list are:
- Italian beef in Chicago
- Salmon burgers in Seattle
- Fish tacos in San Diego
- Lemon icebox pie in Atlanta
- Frozen custard in Milwaukee
- White clam pizza in New Haven
- Chili in El Paso
And, there are restaurant suggestions, so you’ll know where to go for, say, a Cuban sandwich in Key West.
