If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably agree that the best part of travelling is getting to taste all of the delicious cuisines each city has to offer! A true foodie is willing to try anything and everything, and planning your trip itinerary seems to heavily revolve around where you’re going to eat. If you’re planning a trip to the Northeast this year, here are some of the very best cities to grab a bite!
Pittsburgh is home to some of the best restaurants in the Northeast, making it a must-visit if you find yourself in the area. One of the most famous Pittsburgh restaurants is Primanti Brothers, a small chain of restaurants loved by locals and tourists alike. Primanti Brothers is best known for their “Almost Famous” sandwiches, which consist of meat, cheese, tomatoes, french fries and coleslaw stuffed between two pieces of Italian bread. After tasting this famous dish, you just might find yourself looking at Pittsburgh homes for sale so that you can enjoy the delicious local cuisine year-round!
If you’re a seafood lover, there’s no better place to grab some fresh lobster than Portland, Maine! The city is best known for its fresh seafood, particularly lobster, and people from all over the country line up to get their hands on this tasty local delicacy. One of the most popular restaurants in the city is Central Provisions, an eclectic eatery specializing in small plates and a variety of unique menu items. Depending on what time of year you visit, the Portland Lobster Company serves up some of the best seafood in town with a great view of the water while you’re dining.
The City of Brotherly Love is known for many things- the Liberty Bell, passionate sports fans and most importantly, cheesesteaks! Locals sweat by either Pat’s or Geno’s, but the city offers tons of spots to grab some delicious Philly grub. The city is also home to a number of vegan restaurants, some even offering their own plant-based versions of the famous Philly cheesesteak! Govinda’s Vegetarian Restaurant on South Street offers both vegan and vegetarian comfort food classics, with their “chicken” cheesesteak being the most popular menu item. The food in Philadelphia is too good to put into words, you’ll just have to see for yourself!
Boston is another East Coast city that offers up some of the best seafood you’ll ever taste! Most famously known for New England clam chowder, Boston boasts many incredible seafood restaurants with this dish prominently featured on the menus. If you’re looking to try a little bit of everything, Boston’s Faneuil Hall Marketplace features a long indoor corridor with dozens of restaurant kiosks for a quick bite. For dessert, be sure to stop by the Omni Parker House and order a Boston cream pie– the very place it was first created!
