There are Italian places in NYC that tourists visit, even in the outer boroughs. Many tourists to NYC go out of their way to try a slice of New York pizza.
Sometimes the sons of those generations move to Texas and make the pizza there as well.

Sure, you're more likely to find better Italian where they flow into the country in NYC, but you can still find it elsewhere.

I'm one who likes both about equally. I've always loved the strawberry shakes at Lotaburger and the chocolate shakes at Whataburger. I would go to both places about equally, but Lotaburger has tons more locations in Albuquerque than Whataburger does, so Lotaburger usually gets more visits from me because of that.

So what? Southerners move north and open up places, as well. In Milwaukee, the black areas of town have excellent BBQ. That doesn't mean that because there are a few good joints the quality and variety come anywhere close to, say, Memphis. Just like Italian food on the East Coast - it's way, way, waaaay better than in, say, Mobile. I think some of you are talking out both sides of your mouths.

I agree with you.

Not sure why you would think I'd say any different.

I thought you were contesting "American Italian food" as a regional specialty of the East Coast, in the way that bbq (etc) is a regional specialty of the South. If I'm wrong, I definitely apologize

Not at all.

Oriental food in the NW, Mexican, SW-S

We're all on the same page. You're jumpy.
