Well I work in the Big Apple.

The town I live in (Montclair NJ)... hmm.... well it's the culinary capital of North Jersey, but I don't think that's very well known 'round the world.

ALTHOUGH, I was at a restaurant in Colombo, Sri Lanka and the chef mentioned that he used to work at a restaurant in Montclair, NJ. So maybe it is known throughout the world, or at least in one faraway place or two.
