For our recent Eat Like a Local Twitter chat, we discussed everything from food trends to where to find the best plate of pasta. Here are some highlights in case you missed it, otherwise, be sure to follow @TravlandLeisure and #TL_Chat on Twitter every Tuesday at 2pm ET for our weekly chats.
Name a dish that totally encapsulates its destination.
What global cuisine is on the rise?
A4: We’re big fans of the serious vegetable cookery trend, i.e. vegetables getting starring roles on menus. #TL_Chat— Beard Foundation (@beardfoundation) March 25, 2014
Name a touristy restaurant that is worth the hype.
A5. At the risk of sounding like a broken record (more tahini, pls), modern Israeli food is poised to take over the world. #TL_Chat— Peter Frank (@pfrank1) March 25, 2014
A9: Arnaud’s in NOLA is an institution, and I don’t care how many tourists are eating next to me! #TL_Chat— Jacqueline Gifford (@jacquigiff) March 25, 2014
A9: Not sure this counts as touristy, but I always tell visitors go to Peter Luger steakhouse. And they're always so happy. #TL_Chat— kate krader (@kkrader) March 25, 2014
A9: Some places—like Paris—it’s ok to embrace the cliche. Comptoir du Relais and Bistrot Paul Bert, they’re known cuz they’re good! #TL_Chat
