    100 places to eat like a local

    Local eats from home and travelss

    I love asking the locals where to eat in their town and not relying on Zagat or advertising.
    Lake Tahoe: Found a fantastic breakfast joint with a line out the door. Rude Brothers had fantastic bagels and wonderful smoothies.
    We had a great Italian dinner at Teps Villa Roma. It reminded me of New Jersey style Old school Italian places, turns out, the owners are from Jersey and had a restaurant there too. Nothing fancy, even a little dark & dusty, but the meal was great!
    Israel: Jakko. it's a seafood place in Netanya with a mezze course to start. It's been 13 years and I still dream about the shrimp in roquefort sauce.
    DC: Clydes. There are a few throughout the DC Metro area. All are excellent food, service and ambiance. Come dressed as you are and have the crab & artichoke dip. There is a reason why every location is consistently busy, it's just good food done well with very reasonable prices.
    Brooklyn: L & B Spumoni Gardens. Yes, it's been on a few food travel shows lately, but it's NOT tourist joint. It's the best sicilian pie you'll ever eat anywhere.
    Cincinnati: The Precinct. Oh heaven that steak was good!
