For someone like me, New York has never really been at the top of my list of places I’d like to live. For the longest time I really had no desire to even visit NYC or even upstate. While it’s not at the top of my travel destination list, I would have to say that NYC is one of the many places I want to go for a foodie roadtrip.

Where I live now, you could cut through Canada and be in NYC in a days drive. I know quite a few people who do the drive a few times a year.
I am not sure how much longer I will be here in Michigan. I’m just taking things one day at a time. But, I’d like to find a travel buddy who would enjoy the scenic route to the city.
I’m a huge fan of art. It is something that I was involved in growing up; a trait I get from my mother. But somewhere along the trail of life, I let it go.
Even though I have moved on a bit from YUMeating, a lot of that has followed me here. I guess, once a foodie, always a foodie.
Combine two things I love – food and art – and you have a match made in heaven.
I’m sure I’ll probably be starving after the meal, but it has been a dream of mine to visit a place like one of these on the list where food and art are fused together to bring out the most beautiful dishes one could lay their eyes on.
While I can’t visit them all, I’m sure I am going to have a tough time trying to narrow it down to a few.
If you could travel anywhere in the US and eat at only one restaurant, which would it be?

I am lame, so I am wicked happy just eating a burger. I would go to any great burger joint 🙂
I love beautiful food. I really do eat with my eyes before I ever get the food into my body. It’s hard to choose just one restaurant I would love to dine at though.

I am not to particular when it comes to food. I would like to try all of them, but my first pick would Blanca.
Liz Mays says
NYC definitely has some interesting restaurants. I used to go there with my sister every now and then. We should have planned our restaurant visits.
I remember going to NYC and eating there, interesting food options there for sure!

There are so many restaurants on my foodie bucket list, but I think my number one is Moto in Chicago. The NYC area seems to have an amazing food selection!

It would be fun to pick one restaurant from each major city and be treated to dinner. The food industry is a blast, and quite competitive. If I plan to travel your way, I’ll let you know. Maybe we can select one place to meet, eat, and enjoy the meal.
If food looks too good sometimes I just cant eat it!

The food in your slide show is visually extraordinary. New York has some great food options!

I would love to go to the Golden Coral. I go to visit my parents in Florida twice a year and we go every time.

NYC is a neat place to visit and also get around in general.
MY father-in-law thinks it is way better than Philadelphia for several reasons, this being one.
I love “instagram worthy” food and this sure is it! NYC is filled with great restaurants and is one of my fav cities for eating.
I love going to fancy restaurants and getting those photo ready foods.

I like fresh seafood. I’d love to go somewhere known for its lobster. I’d enjoy it cooked w/ butter and in a lobster mac & cheese.
I have no desire to live in New York myself. But, food? I’m all about food and would spend a weekend eating myself through this list!
It’s so incredible what people come up with! I love looking at all photos & getting inspired. I don’t think I could live in New York myself, but I love visiting (and eating).

I really love food especially when it looks really good.
Yolanda @SeeingItTheirWay says
I am not much of a foodie I love southern food. But I would love to travel to Arizona and hope yummy food awaits me.
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
I live in New York City, the food options here are incredible!
I can only imagine!

There’s this amazing breakfast place in San Francisco called Plow – it’s farm-to-table American food… super creative and SUPER tasty. I would fly across the country for that.
I love when food is cooked and served in a beautiful way, it’s even a pity to eat it, it’s then like picture – it’s worth watching and being excited about! )))
