Road Trip to Minneapolis from NYC
I am embarking on a pretty big (for me) road trip from NYC all the way to Minneapolis in late August.
We are taking I-80 most of the way.
All 3 passengers (and two dogs!) are foodies. We will go, say, an hour or so off the path for amazing chow. More if it's something really good that we can't miss.
I am mostly interested in the Indiana/Illinois/Ohio/Michigan portions of the journey. All suggestions welcome. (Dog-friendly preferred, I suppose)
We will eat anything as long as it is delicious.
Here's hoping you Chowhounds assault me with suggestions
Murphin Ridge Inn in West Union OH is nice and there is a super cool worker owned restaurant in Athens OH called Casa Nueva that shouldn't be missed >> don't know if those are to out of the way tho. Problem with major highway routes like that is you get a lot of chains along them
There is a very good article in today's Star Tribune newspaper about the restaurants along that stretch. Hopefully you can access it online: www.startribune.com Lots of wonderful sounding places, some of which I knew nothing about (although I'm not a frequent guest to that part of Minnesota lately).
Sounds like my kind of trip. Enjoy it.
