The talk about "fair food" made me think about this thread. Maybe it sould not be in the pro section but at the time I thought some new ideas for or by the food pros here might be helpfull. I still do.

The "State Fare" name idea was great for a place that sold "fair type" foods. I wish there was one in my neighborhood! And... that it sold a green chile corn dog.

Anyone else have any more creative new ideas... or something to say about the earlier ones mentioned in this thread???

      After reading about the Stern's latest book, I was thinking the same thing..................Roadfood Sandwich Restaurant. It would have the fish tacos, the speidi's, the pork tenderloins, the Kentucky Browns, a couple of the Jewish Deli sandwiches, and the list goes on.
      I could go to a restaurant like that every single day and be delighted.


      Oh my goodness, I forgot to mention the gyros, the cheesesteaks, the hot meat ball, and the sausage and pepper subs! and the muffalata and the po boys.

          there is a restaurant/coffee shop small chain called "America" that does that "roadfood" theme. They have locations in NY NY hotel casino in Vegas, as well as Wash. DC (Union station)
          Plus maybe somewhere else?!

          the menu lists cities next to each entree and appetizer...
          like "cobb salad........hollwood"........"flat iron steak........NYC"..

          it's got a big mural of the USA, and while I've been inside the restaurant in Vegas to look around, I've never eaten there...
          the menu sure sounds appetizing, but there were so many choices in Vegas, (like buffets, etc), that I have'nt got around to trying it..

          I wonder if the food actually tastes as good as it sounds?!?

          Your "state fair" idea has legs!!
          assuming the cook is skilled at making all of these different regional dishes!

            I like the play on the words with State Fare. I would suggest that you could take foods from different regions and kick them up. Some great ideas have been suggested. I'll add a lobster corn dog. If you want to go the corn dog route, make doggie sliders with cocktail franks with a ...oh, I don't know, a honey mustard dip.

            One thing to consider is how to keep it simple in some ways. You gotta figure that there are many things you can offer with ground beef and chicken. Onions and garlic can be found in many of the dishes.
            But if you want to do a BBQ pulled pork, consider using the same meat for burritos or go Hawaiian with Kahlua pig.

            My idea is a place that would be called Whirled Noodles (World, get it?). I would make a variety of noodle dishes from around the globe. Too be honest, I know the idea is already being done. There was one place in NOLA that was pretty good. But that doesn't mean that someone else could do it too.
