Top Restaurants To Visit As You Travel The Eastern Seaboard

Travel along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States increases every Spring. For many, the highlight of travel time is the potential stops for food. Though fast food just off the interstate is the most convenient, a little extra drive time to experience the finest that the Atlantic Coast has to offer makes any trip more memorable.

 

South Florida is often referred to as the Sixth Borough since most of its seasonal residents are from New York. For that reason, it makes sense to start our trip with breakfast as you make your escape from the Big Apple. Just before you hit the long drive on Interstate 95, make a stop at Jersey Cities Brownstone Diner & Pancake Factory. Their inviting website states, “The Brownstone Diner & Pancake Factory relentlessly seeks to redefine the diner experience of the past, while maintaining the comforting mystique that only an old-fashioned diner can provide.” And their menu is proof of their relentless effort. As its name implies, pancakes are the main attraction. With nearly thirty choices, there is something for everyone. And the rest of the breakfast offerings is equally impressive. Breakfast staples, pancake wraps, breakfast sandwiches, and a variety of French Toast options make Brownstone’s a must to start your long journey.

 

Depending on traffic and how fast you drive, your best lunch options will be anywhere from Philadelphia to Richmond. This creates a lot of options. Your best bets just off the Interstate are Philadelphia’s High Street On Market, Baltimore’s Di Pasquale’s Italian Marketplace & Deli, and Washington D.C.’s Mission BBQ. Each one has its own unique approach to food preparation and service. Di Pasquale’s boasts authentic, rustic Italian fare from a 100 year old family operation. High Street features fresh baked hearth baked breads, while Mission BBQ serves the best BBQ from across the US and gives back to serve military and law enforcement.

 

Continue driving south on 95 and you will enter the Coastal Carolinas. A stop in Florence, South Carolina is not complete without a meal at Red Bone Alley. The menu selections combine southern favorites with a creative blend of cultures of coastal South Carolina.

 

Though most know for peaches and peanuts, Georgia is home to some to the finest seafood fare in the US. The historic coastal town of Savannah is just minutes off of 95 and will be one of your most memorable stops on your journey to the tropics. Among the best Savannah has to offer is Love’s Seafood and Steaks. Offering both indoor and outdoor seating, Love’s proves to be a memorable dining experience with each visit.

 

Start making your travel plans now and remember to plan each meal well. You won’t regret it.
