I'm retiring soon and would like to eat my way throughout the USA. In the past, I've often gone to restaurants with many great menu items, but because of limited time (usually one meal) I wan't able to sample them all.
With plenty of time when I retire, I'm wondering what are the best "destination restaurants" in the USA? By "destination" I mean those that I would visit for a few days - stay in a nearby motel - and dine at a number of times.
A few that come to mind are Doe's Eat Place (Mississippi) and Mosca's (outside New Orleans ~ interesting article about it in the Nov. 22 New Yorker).
Thanks in advance for suggestions!
