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.

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?

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

Wait, I know, what about American BBQ.

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.

1. Never heard of that
2. Once they got the US I do think it changed a bit
3. I'm not from Chicago, but Deep Dish Chicago Style is not any thick crust American Sicilian pizza I that I know of. Though according to Wikipedia there are at least 4 styles of Sicilian pizza. One like we know of and 3 others that don't look like Deep Dish. They also point out that Chicago Style was developed in Chicago.
4. OK
5. Now this is where it can get heated
  • Beef or Pork or Chicken (Chicken who said chicken )
  • Sauce while cooking or no sauce but rub or Sauce at the table
  • Tomato based BBQ sauce or mustard based
  • then of course you get into the right wood
  • it just goes on from there .

6. yep for it truly to be American you get cranberries, wild rice and turkey maybe potatoes.

The only way to do "true" American food would be things like pemmican, beans, squash, corn, etc...

I would also like to see a nice restaurant serving regional, American food. It doesn't have to be of American origin. After all, many WDW visitors are American, but our ancestors came here from another country. That doesn't make us less American. Unfortunately, I don't think that will ever happen. People have asked for a TS there for years. They sell too many subpar hamburgers & hotdogs to close the CS location. If they did, there would be many protesting that they couldn't get normal CS food in WS. I don't know how much land is available for expansion, but it may happen someday, if they could keep the CS & open a TS restaurant.

PS: OP, I think we all knew you were referring to the American Pavilion not the attraction.

True American food would be: okra, squash, turnip greens, corn bread, pork chops, and corn on the cob with a tall glass of iced tea.

As for BBQ, I saw something on the travel channel that said that the Indians developed the slow cooking method and that Europeans introduced the pig to it. The same man that said that also said that South Carolina is the birth place of bbq for that reason. (I have no idea.)

As for the person who spoke of Tomato based and Mustard based bbq sauce...yes, I've tried those. In Alabama, we introduced the mayonnaise based bbq sauce. Yumm!

I prefer both the tomato and mayonnaise based sauces to the mustard sauces.
