Starting the Blog for 2015, Decided to Go With Iconic
If you try the link above, you'll be treated to a list of the 50 Most Iconic restaurants (1 per state) as summarized by the writers of Thrillist.
I've traveled in 33 states. But I've only eaten in 4 (and only restaurants that have survived for decades need apply).
From my really great places to eat lists: The Commander's Palace in N'Awlins
Katz's Deli in NYC
From my really obscure lists: Matt's Bar in Mpls (home of the Juicy Lucy)
The Red Pepper in GF, Nodak.
I almost wept from hunger at seeing the Red Pepper again. I hadn't remembered its name, but I never forgot those delicious grinders and garbage plates no matter what the weather in college.
Here it is (whoda thunk it would survive for nearly 6 decades?) I'm not sure I was ever there before midnight, but maybe.........
Enjoy the list and see if you agree for your state, or, how many you have eaten at!!!!!
