I've been pushing this idea for years. Forget about trying to figure out what "real" American cuisine is. We are the melting pot. We get that. But it would be easy to design a restaurant that captures a concept that is indeed uniquely American.....road food. I would love to see an Airstream diner style casual TS place or a Route 66 style restaurant. I would call it "Stern's" in honor of the husband and wife authorities who literally wrote the book(s) on American regional cuisine. The menu could include hot dogs, hamburgers, pastrami, fried chicken and lots of other stuff that one would find on the Mother Road whether or not those foods have their origin from other countries.
