#ABRoadEats Fall 2017: Calling All Fans For Recommendations

#ABRoadEats Fall 2017: Calling All Fans For Recommendations

If you’ve been following me for the past few years, I’m sure by now you are familiar with #ABRoadEats (and if you’re not, what have you been doing?!). Ultimately, #ABRoadEats is a program I created and used tour-after-tour to get recommendations from YOU on the best eateries to stop at while I travel across the country.

I have consumed more doughnuts, tacos and burgers than you could ever imagine, and… I’m back for more. Since all of your suggestions thus far have been so spot on, I’m bringing #ABRoadEats back yet again, as I am going on the last leg of my Eat Your Science tour this fall. For each city I’m scheduled to go to, I am seeking your native advice on where to get the best brewed coffee, casual lunches, and late-night grubbing spots for after the show. You may leave comments below on this post, or on Facebook or Twitter.

And remember — It’s very important that you include the corresponding hashtag to the city you’re recommending for:

    Southern Creamery in Marianna, Fl. Some of the best ice cream ever. They own Ocheesee Dairy which provides the cream. They pair that up with locally sourced ingredients. Corn?? Tupelo Honey?? Bay Laurel?? And all the favorites as well . . .

    Alcenia’s — incredible soul food from a place loaded with culture and personality. Nothing watered down here.

    In Philadelphia, my absolute fave is Rx, on 45th & spruce. Super delicious breakfast, lunch & dinner, AND it’s a byob, so you can bring whatever you like.

    Brioso Roaster in Columbus, Ohio has been the best coffee I’ve had even compared to some places in different states, as well as different countries. Maybe I just don’t know how to find the really good places… Brioso’s owner, Jeff, sources out great coffee by actually going to visit the farms. I prefer the natural, unwashed coffees (particularly the fruitier ones) as they retain their own personal flavors from the terroir. My favorite part about Brioso is being able to smell the aroma before I even see the place as I bike, then going to the bean station, swirling the tubs, opening them, and inhaling. Enjoy! Hope this comment isn’t too late!

    If at all possible there is a place in Tennessee called bell buckle which has one restaurant, on coffee shop and one ice cream parlour straight out of a southern 50’s hangout spot. Each place should be visited and once you have you may thank me. I would also like to add that this town has a deep and rich history you would love I imagine

    For breakfast have the the farmhouse biscuit sandwich from Milk and Honey. It is the best breakfast sandwich ever.

    For lunch have a burger from the Tremont tavern. The best burger in Tennessee.

    After the show go to the Flying Squirrel which is a bar but which has excellent food. Or go to Stir and sample the chicken picatta just ask for extra sauce.

    #ABRoadEatsLIT Bourbon Coffee Cortado. How about single sourced beans from a family farm in Guatemala, aged for 45 days in an aged smoked bourbon barrel, roasted to perfection by the son of the family here in Little Rock, and then perfectly extracted into one of the finest Cortados’ you have ever had. #drinkyourscience.

    @ The Corner for Saturday &/or Sunday brunch! The modern diner is owned & operated by 3 sisters and a mother. They’ve taken the old-school diner concept and matched it with modern expectations- a farm-to-fork diner with menus that constantly innovate. Oh they are doing a Science-Inspired Brunch this weekend! #ABRoadEatsLIT I think this will be perfect!
