Perhaps you're from from Miami, and you've grown up on the jerk chicken, curry goat, and other Jamaican recipes from Clive's Cafe.

Or you'll always sit in an hour of traffic just for a bite of the chicken and waffles at Poppy + Rose in downtown Los Angeles.

Maybe you live in NYC and you love spending summer days eating crab legs and dirty rice on the outdoor patio at Lolo's Seafood Shack.
