Who doesn’t love to enjoy a great meal while on vacation? It’s absolutely a good idea to plan a getaway that completely revolves around food, and we’ve got you covered with the cities that can make all of your breakfast, lunch, and dinner dreams come true.
This city in southern Maine has long been a favorite for food writers and bloggers, and with good reason—it seems like the culinary landscape is constantly changing, with amazing new restaurants and bars popping up seemingly every year. Right now, the hottest eateries in town include The Honey Paw, Central Probisions, and Fore Street.
San Francisco, CA
Seafood and Pan-Asian eats mingle in the Bay Area, making it a can’t-miss destination for restaurant lovers. For lunch, sidle up to the counter at Swan Oyster Depot—and if you really want to pretend you’re a local, order the off-menu scallop sashimi, which is prepared with the freshest catches of the day. Later on, head to Nightbird, Jiangnan Cuisine, or Michelin-starred The Progress.
New Orleans, LA
It’s hard to go wrong when it comes to food in The Big Easy. From beignets to oysters, there are so many good places to eat great things. Of course, you’d be remiss if you didn’t pay a visit to the iconic Cafe du Monde for its iconic take on the donut and a cup of chicory-infused coffee. Take things up a notch at Commanders Palace, an old-school, upscale restaurant that’s been delighting diners in NOLA since 1880.
Another city where you can enjoy impeccable southern cuisine in Charleston. One of the most popular restaurants in town is Husk, which focuses on locally-sourced, organic cuisine. And because when you’re down south, the best breakfast is biscuits, you can get your fix at Callie’s One Hot Biscuit. If it’s seafood you’re after, check out Leon’s Oyster Shop. Housed in a converted garage, it’s a local favorite also famous for its fried chicken.
