Food and drink is a tasty way of highlighting the American experience and is an important factor for foodies planning their holiday.
From the East Coast to the West Coast and everywhere in-between, the USA has a varied and famed food scene. Hungry holidaymakers can expect to see thick barbecue ribs and smoked brisket delivered piping hot at a Texas roadhouse; watch talented chefs blend organic, fresh-off-the-farm produce with Asian twists at award-winning West Coast restaurants; get a fix of fresh bagels and lox at a century-old deli in Manhattan's Upper West Side, or indulge in plump pancakes, fried bacon and eggs over easy under the clatter of cutlery at a 1950s-style diner.
Steaming plates of fresh lobster are served at the waterside in Maine, while oysters and champagne are quaffed in fashionable city wine bars, and beer and pizza are served at an authentic Midwestern watering hole.
There’s no shortage of ways to dine à la Americana!
