No problem, just understanding where the other poster is coming from. Like if someone asked about Southern food offerings, I wouldn't suggest Hooters just because it's based in Atlanta.

Unfortunately it's a somewhat broad based question given the dozens of cities over one quarter of the country to just ask where would you eat in the Midwest, or south, or NE, or wherever.

Because one would like to learn and see more of the country in which one lives? Unless one is too provincial and narrow-minded to expand one's horizons ...

Exactly. From Detroit, for instance, you're a only a few hours from Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Chicago, Indianapolis, Milwaukee ... Methinks that person has never consulted a map in his/her life.

I feel like the soul food in Detroit or Chicago would be to die for...oh and Dearborn (Metro Detroit) has a huge Arab population so you can add that to the list of ethnic cuisine as well

Does the Midwest really get alot of hate? I don't ever hear anyone even mentioning it unless they are visiting friends or family somewhere in the Midwest. Are we sure it's not just a lack of mention of the region?

Same with any region...I never hear anyone here speak of other regions. It's just the way it is.

Don't forget Omaha steaks! Plus, they have a great zoo, and you can see the college baseball world series.
