Udon Mugizo

Lucky we found this place in Japantown. Order the Niku Udon with Pot of Green Tea.

San Francisco, CA

The Perch

Next to scenic Port Meadow. Beautiful outdoor area. Get the sticky toffee pudding and avoid having one too many ginger beers. Mussel stew is a must. Very much al fresco, so consider bringing bug spray!

Oxford, UK


Another locals-only vibe. I rec the Lamb Wellington and Elderflower Panna Cotta.

London, United Kingdom

Pizza Factory

Stop here en route or departing Yosemite's Arch Rock Entrance. They will make you pizza even if you show up 15 minutes before close. You may even get a free cookie, too.

Mariposa, CA

Blue Duck Tavern

Roasted whole duck. These run out quickly, so be sure to place your order ASAP if you have a late reservation.

Washington, DC

Harold's Diner

A Hilton Head classic - just don't let them know if you're a tourist. Very quick and loud. This isn't your average "Salty Dog." I'd rec the pancakes and rye breakfast sandwich.

Hilton Head, SC
