I had a lot of great and very helpful responses to my older thread (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/549909), but now that I *think* I have some direction, I figured it would be best to start a new topic. Long story short, I am going on a trip in a couple of weeks, and want to make a list of places that I could check out in each neighborhood. That way, I can choose a nearby place (hence, by neighborhood) based on what I feel like at the moment. I don't know what sights I will be seeing yet, but it will be pretty impromptu, so I feel that this is the closest I can come to planning an actual agenda.

Do you have any suggestions on the below list? Additions, deletions, or just suggestions on what to get at specific places? Your help is deeply appreciated.
