In the U.S., New Orleans. Internationally, it's a toss-up among France, Greece and Italy

My favorite place is definitely Buenos Aires! Bife de lomo and choripan's are my favorite. Instead of dunkin donuts, you have empanada stores! The malbec wine is great and there's still a 3:1 exchange rate from the us$ to the peso$. If you ever go and want an insiders tip on where to eat and what to do, drop me a line.

I guess you can tell I love France, considering I've been there 7 times in the past 16 years, and will be going again (dollar be da*ned! ) in October...

but there are many places I like to go play with food.

Windsor Colorado is a place where I've participated in three culinary fundraiser dinners with fellow chefs to raise money for culinary scholarships. We have SO much fun when we get together to do that! Am hoping to get there this summer, again... if the air fare isn't TOO expensive!

foodguy,
I hear you, was born there and love all of that plus dulce de leche, sandwiches de miga, facturas con mate, parrillada and locro.

France and Belgium (any part) are also great for the variety and great hability of locals to turn simple ingredients into glorius dishes.

oddly enough I have to say TEXAS

Texas is where I spent my formative foodie years as a student cooking and eating out and sharing with friends.... The cities have great ethnic diversity and the country had great BBQ and Southern food. I cannot possibly fit in all the meals I want to have when I go there.... between the bbq briscut, vietnamese sandwiches, chicken n' waffles, mole enchiladas, chicken fried steak, plus all the great other eats Texas loves to eat out and has soo much great food! Also it tends to be pretty affordable to eat out there. As a rule of thumb the Italian food there leaves something to be desired for that I go to DaBronx

Boston

Mistral in Boston is an awesome restaurant, well worth a trip if you're in the New England area. It's a modern version of Provencal cuisine, excellently presented and quite delicious. It's fancy, but not pretentious. Do make reservations though.

My food getaway is not very sophisticated, but it's home. My family is from georgia and one of the best things I love about it is the food...my family is full of southern cooks. The first thing I do when I get there is go to a place called Jimmy's Hot Dogs in Albany, GA....they have the BEST red hots I've ever eaten topped with chili and onion....I'm drooling just thinking about it....and then my granny gets in teh kitchen and cooks...one night is a fish fry where we eat fresh fish from the gulf of mexico with cheesey grits(that's a southern thang!) and hush puppies....Sunday is when she bakes the ham and makes biggest, greenest, freshest collard greens that I can't find in texas to save my life! To top it all off she always makes a caramel cake and a fresh apple cake....I have to go on a diet when i get home!!! LOL
