I like these little places you find in the South that you'll only find by driving through a neighborhood. Usually it's an old home or grocery store converted into a restaurant.

The story behind the restaurant in the picture is that the blacks would enter in the front, and the whites would secretly pick up food in the back. The opposite of what you'd expect.

Most places have a funny story like that.

I like hot tamales, chili, gumbo, boudin, barbecue, burgers, chili dogs, fried chicken, collard greens...

>doe's eat place

Holy shit, I ate there years ago when I did a road trip through the South and have been trying to remember it's name.

My gf at the time ordered tamales and got a steak, because that's what they were supposed to be known for.

They didn't have prices on the menu, so you can imagine my surprise when they brought us the bill.

>>7264470
The first restaurant I worked at was old and had been built for segregation. You had the upscale front of the restaurant for whites and the back ~1/3 of the place was called "the Jamaican room" Blacks entered in the back and there was no dress code, it was more casual. They actually had a completely different menu for them back in the day.
>>
>>7264490
haha yeah, the steaks are roughly $20/lb and the smallest portion is 2 lbs.

>>7264496
If you were white and you didn't feel like dressing up were you allowed to eat in the Jamaican room?

Except is isn't true. Many of NYC's most popular and best rated restaurants are considered New American, which pretty much means upscale takes on regional American cooking using high end ingredients. Places like Per Se, Gotham Bar and Grill, Gramercy Tavern, Annisa, Union Sq Cafe, Juni, Estela and the River Cafe may all be relentlessly upscale, but the food they serve is American.

I wouldn't necessarily say that. Yet your are kind of right in the the most traditional American food is rooted in Anglo and Scandinavian cuisine.

The availability of very high-quality ingredients means that we're not particularly invested in transforming anything or being inventive.

This list is severely lacking in New Mexican food. Honestly, the world is lacking in New Mexican food. It's awesome and fairly distinctive but has little cultural presence outside the state and virtually none outside the US. I didn't know anything about until I dated a girl from there.

>>7265619
Why does "American food" have to only mean white American food? Tex-Mex and Chinese-American cuisines should absolutely be fair game.

>>7267155
That's not even really relevant. The phrase "There is nothing new under the sun" is especially true with food. The French didn't invent cheesemaking. Pasta isn't originally Italian. Hell, let's get even sillier with this: How can something possibly be considered authentically European if it uses New World crops? Chiles are from central and south America, ergo paprika isn't European, which means that no one in Hungary eats real Hungarian food!
