New York Pizza

Thin, crispy, greasy, and delicious! New York was the first state to open a pizza restaurant which makes them the masters! Try buying a slice from street vendors or independent restaurants to get a real authentic taste.

New England Clam Chowder 

Clam chowder is the ultimate in comfort food. Dating as far back as 1751, the chowder is usually made with the meaty quahog clam and cod or bass, with a creamy, buttery, aromatic base. Herman Melville even describes the scrummy meal in 1851 novel Moby Dick! 

Louisiana Po’ Boys

Originally called ‘Poor Boys’ and made up of a submarine roll filled with potatoes and gravy, the Po’ Boy has evolved into the New Orleans classic we know and love today. It’s now made with French bread, fried shrimp or oysters, and lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise.
