Best Summer Iconic Food Places?
I want to visit the US food places that are absolutely completely associated with a particular summer travel destination. It's not that it is so much about the quality of the food, but about the chance to eat at really iconic food places.
Here are a list of some of the places I am thinking of including as an idea of what I am looking for:
Miami: Wolfie's Rascal House
New York, Coney Island: Nathan's
New York, Tavern on the Green
SF, Fisherman's Wharf: Alioto's
Please share your favorites from around the world...
For Washington DC, I'd say Ben's Chili Bowl firstly. Second I'd say Old Ebbitt Grill which is so very DC and has had many a political repartee over the many years. And because you said summer, I'm going to go out there and say the roof terrace at the Hotel Washington because you overlook all that IS iconic about DC: the monuments. For OK drinks and not for the food, it's breathtaking.
And just because it would have been near the top of my list were it not for the fire, Market Lunch at Eastern Market in the Capitol Hill area. The bluebucks (blueberry buckwheat pancakes) are iconic and the place beloved. I've met folks from far and wide while waiting in the inevitable line at Market Lunch. Eastern Market was severely damaged by fire 3 weeks ago, and the vendors will be temporarily housed in a transitional structure nearby. It may not be up and running by the time you visit unfortunately. Just thought you should know about it for completeness.
Tadich Gril - San Francisco - the oldest restaurant in town w/really great food and atmosphere
