I have a book, Eat Your Way Across The USA. by the Sterns that lists places such as Bern’s Steak House, Peter Luger, Sparks, Grand Central Oyster Bar, Lundys, Obryckis, Al Forno, Abbotts, the Fish Tale, etc., etc., etc. None of these would fit some of our correspondents narrow definition of roadfood.
Like most of us here on the roadfood.com I love a well made hamburger, a chili dog, a variety of BBQs, some quick fried fish,
cold cuts, sausage and eggs, and all that other great great surprises we find along the road sometimes when we’re lucky.
But, I, and I suspect a lot of others here on the roadfood site also like to be pampered with solicitous service, expensive ingredients, tasteful decor, seven courses, good wine, and all that goes with "fine dining". I hope we can talk about every sort of eating and drinking experience that’s available out there.
As for me, I promise I’ll never bring up canapes – even though I’ve got a whole lot of cocktail party stories that might involve such effete little bits
of eastern culture.
