From Florida I think Floribbean cuisine would be a good contribution.

Cafe Poca Cosa - Plato Poca Cosa - Foodspotting
PLEASE don't forget the Sonoran Hot Dog!

From Massachusetts: I'd say N.E. Clam Chowder, Haddock, Clam Strips, and Broiled New Bedford Scallops. Apple Crisp seems like an appropriate dessert choice.

Rhode Island: NY System Weiner, Stuffed Quahog, and Dell's Lemonade.

Maine: Easy. Lobster Roll.

I was waiting for someone to do New England--and for Mass and Maine that's exactly what popped into my head.

What about the rest of the region? I've never spent much time in New Hampshire or Vermont.

Connecticut- New Haven-style clam pizza?

Hawaii--I've never lived there, but I've visited and here's my 2 cents:

My favorite fish ever: ahi tuna, marinated in soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar. Seared on the outside and raw on the inside, sliced pretty thin.

Laulau ... just yummm

Yeah, I had a hard time thinking of stuff for the other three.

White Clam Pizza (Frank Pepe's...mmmmmm) popped into my head for CT. So did Hamburger as Louie's Lunch in New Haven i often given credit for being the original (served on sliced bread, not a bun). CT also has the steamed burger too which is sort of unique.

For Vermont, Ben and Jerry's for dessert (arguably the most famous ice cream in the U.S.). Aside from that, I can think of food products, but not necessarily meals. Maple syrup is Vermont's thing. They also do a lot of cheese, but WI is probably more famous for that.

NH is the toughest. There's more poutine in NH than any of the other NE states, but that's a French Canadian dish. Other than that, they get a little blend of everything from Maine, VT and MA. Definitely Kate the Great from Portsmouth Brewery. That'll be my beer at this giant feast.
