I have a friend visiting from Paris this summer.
I know nothing can compare to Paris restaurants, but I'd like to try. I know I can show him Ethiopian, Afghan, Lebanese, Peruvian, Moroccan, Vietnamese.. given that this is the US I will have to show him Mexican. I know he likes BBQ, too.
Can you tell me please: 1. what other countries have I forgotten? and 2. any places you would recommend for each country? I'm not thinking about western European cuisines, although one or two great examples of US cuisine would be good.
He is French with Iraqi/Tunisian background. He can't eat pork but otherwise he's good to go. Halal meat would be a bonus although I don't think he's that strict - but definitely no pork.
Thank you for any ideas!
