Southern Michigan - lots of German/Polish influences. Kielbasa with sauerkraut, sauerbraten, pierogies, stuffed cabbage, spätzle, potato pancakes, duck’s blood soup, rye or pumpernickel bread.

Definitely

We finally got a decent NE Seafood restaurant in our area a couple years ago that flies in lobster and clams 2-3 times a week (during season). I go about every 2 weeks just to get my fill of fried Ipswich Clams (whole belly)

It's a little Mom & Pop (hope Mark & Laurie don't read this!!) operation and the restaurant seats about 40. Complete with the Bawhstan accent...Mark cooks and Laurie does a good imitation of a Durgin Park waitress, hustling folks in and out.

Seafood in Seattle- that's my suggestion.
We/I didn't actually travel there...we're all stuck on Wall Street I did pulled meats, different types of sauces, focusing on chili peppers.

Is there a city name that New York Traders would recognize?

Another excellent idea...I just need the name of a city that is recognizable.

Thanks to all the initial posters for the bbq suggestions. One thing's for sure, NYSE traders love love love barbecue.
