Got to agree with Bacco in Southfield MI. Amazing stuff. Not the best pasta I've ever had, that would be a simply sublime fettucine alfredo made by a friend of mine who's first generation Italian-American, but excellent.

SE Michigan doesn't have a huge Italian presence. If you wanted Greek, Lebanese, Polish, Irish or Mexican I could point you to places that would blow your mind.

Kansas has houses made of pasta. Except those houses all have swimming pools which means they aren't in Kansas ... anymore.

now I want Italian for lunch

I love the food scene here, but there is a bit of a lack of Italian places. Particularly quick/cheap/neighborhood places.  If I wanted Indian I'd have a TON of options, but I don't feel like Indian today.

South Dakota just has a chain listed. Well, that's pretty accurate for South Dakota.

Huh, I walk past the one listed for New Jersey all the time, but I've never eaten there. I'll have to give it a try. They used to just be a local pizza place and then upped their game.

Couldn't stand the Russian while we lived there (blame Samovar's), but the Phillipino component to just about everything was a welcome surprise. Bacon fried rice with two over easy eggs and spicy sausages at the Valley was awesome. Superb Ear's freezer section had nice surprises too.

Texas: short rib ravioli, Bludorn, Houston


First off, good on them for *not* picking some place in Austin.  But Bludorn?  They're good but they are a block and a half away from a traditional Italian restaurant and a trattoria (Nino's/Vincent's).  And just a few blocks from Perbacco (if you can ever get in there).

And I'm surprised that Louisiana didn't feature some crawfish linguine or something.

Looks up home state of Maine. Of course, it has to be a lobster something which hardly anyone here eats(or if we do it ain't a big deal), but everyone thinks is "quintessential Maine". That's just some lazy shiat list.

I only went there once, and it was for lunch.  What I had was a bit underwhelming, but maybe there is better stuff on the dinner menu.  Seems like every time I ask an Italian around Detroit what is good as far as restaurants, they always mention a place, but then add that it has gone down hill in the last ten years.  So not really a lot of help.

In Kentucky, Vincenzo's is a great restaurant. I've eaten there once, long ago, when Hilary Clinton came to town to discuss "It Takes a Village." Everyone had the same meal: some kind of steak w/ pear and gorgonzola salad. It was fantastic. Her table was about 10' from our table. When you got tickets for the event is was obviously for HRC. You couldn't have stumbled into them anymore than you could have stumbled upon Beatles tickets. And yet 3 of the people at our table just grumbled and fumed through the whole meal alleging they'd been tricked or misled. As the saying (almost) goes: didn't care. Had steak w/ pear and gorgonzola salad.

HRC didn't stop by the table to explain if she's still mad at me or what. They don't come over for Christmas, and I can't remember their last card or letter.

I am partial to the pastas at D'Amico's Market in Rice Village. The wild mushroom and walnut tortellini, the tortellini Genovese, and the crawfish ravioli are all freaking awesome. I may be a bit biased as I worked for D'Amico when he had his restaurant on Galveston Island, but the pastas were homemade, great and not over priced.

Because of their awful formatting, no idea what description is supposed to match this dish or where I have to never go to be sure nobody ever puts a plate like this in front of me,

It looks like udon in baby shiat.

Before COVID and WFH, my wife was right over there (between the stadium and med. center).  She went there all the time and would often bring home take out or left overs.  Their food is incredible - even re-heated.

I am glad to hear that they are still rocking the good food. It has been probably 8 or so years since I have had the chance to go since it is so far away (and 25 years that I worked for them).

It's been great considering I beat it on Road Atlanta so much years ago.  Engine stock still other than a Cobb flash from like 2007.  I've removed a lot of things like the Prodrive springs and such.  Don't need that rough ride hauling Axle to the park.  At 210k miles I wouldn't track it again anyway but I'm not afraid to drive it anywhere though..

Totally scratch. Homemade fettuccine (bronze dies, no less), tons of garlic, high grade olive oil.
