Dishes that have been endlessly adopted or outright copycatted on other menus, kicked off a lasting trend, or became staples that still define the way we eat today in 2018.

These 101 restaurant dishes all left an enduring imprint on America, and life quite simply wouldn’t taste the same without them.
The list isn't perfect, even doubious or misleading at times, but fun to read.

What a fun site! I went right away to the Sixties when I first became conscious of good eating outside of my home. I expected to see at least one of the Francophile dishes that Jackie Kennedy introduced into fashionable dining in the US and was surprised not to see any.

She became known for her lunches of baked potatoes, sour cream and caviar and her White House recipe of beef Stroganoff. Another dish I remember was a casserole of artichoke hearts, shrimp and whole button mushrooms in a sherry sauce. I believe it was given to her by Adlai Stevenson.

This will provide some fun moments browsing through.

That was fun! Now I realize that I must have missed out on a lot of those and never even heard of most of them.

But chocolate chip cookies! (aka Toll House cookies.) Brought back memories of my mom and how she made them with Nestles chocolate chips. I was allowed to lick the bowl. Chocolate chip cookies and a big, cold glass of milk was the best treat ever.

thanks, what fun this is. I didn't take time to go over the entire list by any means but did enjoy learning about origination of some foods.

As a kid, often dad would go to Philippe's and pick up french dip sandwiches for us on Sunday night. We lived about 10 miles away and we always had an early dinner on Sundays, usually about 2pm. Never has there been a place that could do a better job than Philippe's did. I know they had been around for ever, but not quite as far back as 100 years.

Who would have guessed Cesar salad originated in TJ, Mexico?

I have heard the story about Buffalo wings many times. If I had to live on one junk food for the rest of my life that would be the one

the only food I ever get if I go to 'McDonald's, which is only about once every few years is Fish sandwich, but lots of places do a much better job.

That is a good link! Haven't finished them all, but I was just shocked to read that Avocado Toast popped up in 1993 in Australia. I first heard of it last year.

And I was spreading avocado on bagels before 1993. I think it’s so weird that it’s now considered a “recipe.”

I don't think that back in 1993 I would have even considered eating an avocado. They were considered one of those silly California foods.

Maybe ten years ago I tried guac for the first time. Now I will eat avocados, but it took a while to get over the mushy feel in my mouth.
