The 50 Plates of America: A Culinary Journey Across the U.S.
By Zagat Staff
When you're traveling from sea to shining sea, you sure work up an appetite. With spring-travel season approaching, we thought we'd take a little trip of our own through restaurants around the country to see who's serving up some must-try dishes in each state (plus DC!). Our slide show features 51 dishes that represent the vast and varied culinary scene in America. The selections are sure to stir up some debate - when you have to narrow down all the awesome offerings to just a single selection, some worthy options are bound to be left out. Click through to see some travel-worthy bites and let us know in the comments about which state dishes you think should have made the map.
