To say, and I quote, "which has absolutely nothing to do with New York, thank you very much" is plainly false.

That would be like a pizzeria in New York saying that pizza has 'absolutely nothing to do with Italy, thank you very much'.
Well it would perhaps have made more sense for the article to say "New York in name only."

2009? I think Brisket had been around much earlier than that in Texas BBQ.
Yeah, I think the choices got weirder/weaker as the years got closer to current day. They should have stopped with the 80's perhaps?

This is an interesting read about the history of brisket in Texas. https://www.foodandwine.com/meat-pou...istory-brisket

That would've made more sense. Some items I don't recognize yet as having historical impact. Others I would switch out for earlier exemplars. Like the Doritos Locos Taco (2012) from Taco Bell at #97. If you're looking for "the stunt [fast] food" for the ages, McDonalds' McRib sandwich takes the category.

as thinking the same thing, but maybe the article is referring to the recipe and how it is cooked. We were cooking brisket when I was a kid and certainly smoking it in Texas way before 2000. In fact we moved from Texas in 2001.

The same with the braised short ribs. As a kid my dad would braise them; I have been doing them that was for 40 plus years.

I really had fun reading the article but think some of it was a bit just the authors imagination. Lots of the references given or the starting of a particular recipe was pretty much how many have been preparing these dishes or eating them in a restaurant for many years.

Still a fun read with many examples not being familiar to most of us I am guessing

They just weren't a food we were familiar with here on the east coast when I was growing up. Of course now everything is available everywhere. I first had avocado toast (a bagel actually) last year when my boss got a bagel with avocado and tomato on it then asked me if I wanted it because he had to go to a meeting at another location. It was good! Having it on the bread/toast counteracts the mushiness.
I don't think they were sold in the region until at least the 1980s. That's the Mid-Atlantic, folks. I first ate avocado around that time, but don't remember exactly when. It was on a sandwich from a high end vegetarian restaurant.

I always thought that immigrants were the ones that changed American food culture. I have my doubts that much of that info is accurate. For example, Joe's Stone Crab did not create the key lime pie.
