Nationally, I would say Mama Leoni's in NYC.

In the Carolinas, maybe the Sanitary Kitchen, a waterfront landmark in Morehead City, NC. Guess it's officially called the Sanitary Fish Market and Restaurant, but whatever you call it - I thought it was pretty :cool2:.

Tanya....I've never had the opportunity to visit any really famous restaurants. I guess my favorite is Red Lobster. I really like the Lobster tails.:big_smile:

Not so famous but definitely unique is The Kashmir Indian restaurant in Bradford England. It is located in a basement under the city mortuary (I never asked where they got their meat from:roll_eyes:).
The best Indian food to be had...W

Fire and Ice Pizza in Kathmandu. It's "The Best Pizza in the Indian Subcontinent", which isn't saying much :smile2:

Runners up include Arthur Bryant's Barbecue in Kansas City, Chicken Annie's near Pittsburgh, Kansas, and AQ's Chicken in Springdale, Arkansas. These are all regionally famous, but probably not nationally known.

A couple of years ago, I won a $125.00 gift certificate for Mortons of Chicago steak house; I thought I would have to go to Chicago to redeem it, but, after looking it up on the internet, I found that they are scattered all over the world. The closest one was in Nashville, TN. I didn't want to go, but the wife did, so we went (guess who the boss is?). Approximately 120 miles.

I thought the $125.00 would be way too much for a meal for two people - WRONG!! Everything was ala carte. We each had a salad, steak, baked potatoe, vegetable, split a dessert, and drank black coffee. The bill was $160.00, plus the tip for the waiter and the valet parking guy.

I have to admit, the meal and the service was good, but I've had better for a much smaller price.

I would like to add - driving in downtown Nashville was horrible for me. I found the restaurant OK, but getting back out of town, they had the streets I needed blocked off for a game of some kind at the stadium. After circling around for half an hour, I stopped beside a police car near the barricade. He gave me instructions on how to find I-24. I thanked him and took off. 10 minutes later, after following his directions (exactly, I thought), I ended up beside the same police car. The policeman took pity on the small town hick and led me to my entrance ramp. Many thanks to him and his partner.

This is one famous restaurant I will not visit again. Thanks for reading my long winded tale.

Have a nice day.

I was in New London Conn. back in the mid 80's on business and we visited Mystic to see the old harbor. We asked the locals about where to get some "real" pizza, and was directed to a lil mom & pop pizza joint, Mystic Pizza. I remember the food being great, old school Italian. As it turns out the restuarant was later used in a movie starring a very young and unknown Julia Roberts, the movie was called Mystic Pizza.

The Sanitary. Been going there since I was knee high to gnat.
Its had its moments and had its not real great periods.
Currently I like it. They have a great grilled dolphin and the scenery?
One of the only places you can grab a window seat, eat, and watch the wild horses standing in the sound over at Shackleford Banks. Just a darn good shot put from the resturant.

Herranimous Brothers Seafood in Wilmington used to be a classy seafood joint, not sure how they are now. Great oysters on the half shell and those guys used to come through for me when I ordered 300-500 pounds of jumbo shrimp at the time. They had their own fleet.

Up at Kitty Hawk you cant miss the "Eat and Get the Hell Out"
Breakfast diner atmosphere with the owner sitting behind the register prodding people to eat and get the hell out.
"Hey you lighting the cigarette over there. You through eatin? Well get the hell out, people are waiting for a table."
"LETS GO! Eat and get the hell out!"

Don't remember the name, but had a hot dog once in a restaurant in Barcelona Spain, that I found out later was on Playboy's Top Ten List of best restaurants worldwide.

Black Angus Bar in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Ok, I don't remember much of what happened that night, but the food was great.

Was spending the night under a pier in Corfu Greece while the locals were shooting it out overthrowing their government, again. I was starved and a pushcart peddler came by selling what turned out to be catburgers. He even sold me a blanket, it was chilly that night. I still have that blanket after 34 years.

However, bar none, the best food I have ever eaten comes from a kitchen about 15 ft from where I currently am located.
