What would be your first "off the plane" meal ? Tue, 09/10/13 8:40 AM (permalink)
Will_work_4_bbq's recent thread about finding that one meal in Kansas City got me wondering about that 1 definitive roadfood meal in various larger cities around the country....I know TTM  has told me that his "first meal" off the plane in NYC is always Katz's...
So what would your one definitive roadfood meal be in different cities if you only had the opportunity for "just one meal" (or maybe 2)?
I"ll start with a few and add on some more eventually
-Boston - (If I lived far enough away) Durgin Park (I know Ayersian and Bruce Bilmes are shaking their heads)
-Denver- Buckhorn Exchange (Ayersian and Bruce Bilmes are still shaking their heads) (The Fort is a close second...they're still shaking their heads)  

-Kansas City- Strouds (finally I'm getting a thumbs up) (LC's BBQ is a close second)
-Philadelphia - Tony Luke's

-Baltimore-  G & M Restaurant and Carryout

-Des Moines- Iowa Machine Shed

-Miami -Puerto Sagua or Joe's Stone Crab (when they're open in season)

-Austin- Smitty's (Hoover's is close second)

-Memphis- Payne's BBQ
-New Orleans- Mother's Restaurant
-Buffalo- Schwabl's
-Charlotte- LaWan's Soul Food
-Raleigh- Allen and Son's
-San Francisco- Tadich Grill (Dol Ho would be a close second)
-Los Angeles- Tough choice- either California Roll Factory (( know Mar is shaking her head) or Philippe's
-Omaha - Johnny's Cafe
-Seattle - Spud Fish and Chips

-Portland, OR- Dan and Louie's Oyster Bar
-Portland ME- Gilbert's Chowder House
-Twin Cities - Tavern on Grand & Any place serving Hotdish (Davydd is shaking his head-2nd choice is a joke

-Charleston SC- 82 Queen street
-Savannah GA- The Crab Shack   
-Cleveland OH- Sokolowski's
-Reno- Santa Fe Basque
-Boise- Bar Gernika
-Salt Lake City- Sill's Cafe
-Manchester NH (if I lived far enough away) Chez Vachon
-NYC (if I lived far enough away) sorry TTM I'm still a Second Avenue Deli Guy
-San Antonio- Chris Madrid's

-Milwaukee- Kopp's followed by The Milwaukee Brat House
-St Louis - Ted Drewe's
