How about a TS Restraunt in American Adventure that actualy represents U.S. foods

I know Hot dogs and Hamburgers are as American as it gets, but think its disapointing that the U.S.A. isn't truly represented in its Area. How about a place that serves all the great regional favorites. I'm talking foods like Maryland Crab Cakes, PA Dutch Foods, Chicago style pizza, Southern B-BQ, Fish from the Northwest, and many other great foods.

Sound great in theory, but I don't think this could happen in practice. There would be tons of people who would say this isn't REAL____(add regional dish here). Then there would be the discussion of why something was left off or done poorly.

This is exactly what happened last time this was brought up.

Wait, I know, what about American BBQ.

I live in NYC, and I can assure you, almost all (I think Wolfgang's is supposed to be good?) PIZZA at WDW is NOT good representation of what it should be.

I mean, gross.

Asking WDW to create a restaurant to show off TRUE flavors of this country, would be a FABULOUS idea. Yum. Hush puppies, crab cakes (I also lived in MD for many years), po'boys, deep fried oreos, bbq...omg yum.

How big of a menu do think it would take?

It would make the Cheese Factory's menu look like a small pamphlet.

Exactly. Which is why the better approach would be to focus on the style of restaurant instead of trying to appease every niche culinary idiosyncrasy.

Not sure what this style would be. A diner, a food truck?

First off, for some reason I find these replies so funny and fully entertaining (and interesting).

Secondly, NO ONE here is from America except the Indians. Duh, we all came by boat, airplane, donkeys, wagons, moose, rollerblades, and by foot. LOL. We are one big mix of cool people.

This would mean that though most of the foods we consider our own (hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, etc, etc) were brought over by our ancestors from abroad- BUT, it took generations to 'perfect' and/or 'change' the recipes by adding local ingredients to make it taste as we know it today.

Thirdly, I don't think the menu should be enormous- quite the opposite. I'd love to see a condensed menu that showcases the best of the best.
OR, here's an idea, why not have one food/menu-item for every state? (Maryland = crab cakes)
50 items INCLUDING desserts would be awesome.
(laughing at myself....50 items is definitely NOT condensed. But I still think it's a great idea.)

PS, just wolfed down sick NYC Chinese food delivery that I'm sure people from China would bawk at. YUMMMMM

well you really don't need to because it would be surprise Philly Cheese Steaks not the great Primanti Brothers sandwich with fries and slaw ON THE SANDWICH.

You don't really want them inserting a TS restaurant inside the American Adventure attraction do you? Wouldn't you really prefer that they add this restaurant elsewhere in the American Pavillion?

Yes but most people here don't know what that is or if they are missing something.

Sounds good, but those above food origins are not USA . . .
. . . Crab Cakes - Russian
. . . PA Dutch Foods - German
. . . Chicago Style Pizza - Sicilian
. . . Fish From Northwest - Canadian
. . . Southern BBQ - Caribbean

PS - Hot dogs and hamburgers are not of American origin, either.

Maybe they could have another steak house to compete with Le Cellier? I think a TS of contemporary American food is a great idea.
