Cafe Central in El Paso and Martino just across the border in Juarez are restaurants worthy of France. Every really big American city has outstanding restaurants. However, when my vacation is to be devoted to gustatory pleasure in this country the only two places are New Orleans and environs and the climes of San Francisco.

For great museums it's NYC; for incredible and (for me) the most alien scenery in this country is in the Everglades or Cape Cod in the winter. But for the best food I'll take the sybaritic paradises where each meal is a delight. The south of Louisiana where even a sterile cafeteria or a little dump selling fried oyster sandwiches hold to standards that the gourmet seeks. I'll take New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and the humid bayou country. It's the land of complete self-indulgence.
I been everywhere man.........

You can probably guess which city got my vote.

Do you raise your pinky finger when you drink tea and coffee as well.

Sometimes supper is a hunk of fresh baguette, some artisanal cheese (we make over 300 different kinds), a glass of wine and some fresh fruit.
Looking at the owner of Joe Beef, I surmised that. The guy carries a fist-sized black truffle with him everywhere.. He's like the P Diddy of food. I'm going three places on my food pilgrimage: Montreal, Istanbul and the Yucatan.

Montreal won't disappoint.
Here's another one who had the same idea.

Quick Montreal visit to eat!

- We had to cancel our reservation for Tuesday night at Toque, because the
game did not wrap up until after 10. But they were kind enough to reschedule us
for a late seating the night after. This may have turned out to be one of the
best meals in a while, absolutely on par with quite a few of the Michelin 2 star
meals we have enjoyed over the years. The chef is high on technique and
refinement, but nothing too flashy. We opted for the 7 course tasting menu with
5 glass wine pairing. The menu was as close to flawless as you can get, with
each dish basically leading perfectly into the next. If you haven't been, go and
treat yourself. Be prepared to spend around 3.5 hours, but they fly by.

I see Maine didn't make the list

i'd like to nominate "The Roadkill Café"

the "chunk O Skunk" will rival any Lamb, Veal, and Beef Plate anywhere!

I ate buying the food from a food truck while in Montreal and got kraut dogs and fries. I never guessed that was considered gourmet. I would say the food was good in Montreal but I have eaten a lot of places with better food: Hong Kong for starters, San Francisco, Vancouver, and Krakow,Poland.

There are so many cities with great food, if you know where to go, but I choose San Francisco of the two. There is so much ethnic varieties and to be honest, one of the few ethnic foods I am not crazy over is Cajun.

Do they have Polish, Lithuanian and Bohemian neighborhoods in San Francisco? Can I get good cabbage rolls, kugelis or roast duck and dumplings out there?

Probably locally-sourced, hand-made and organic.
