Owners Ines Josupeit and chef James King join culinary forces at Table 209, a bistro tucked into the historical buildings and sunny harbor walk of Punta Gorda. James brings his 20 years of experience working in kitchens throughout San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland to the restaurant, cobbling fresh seafood, prime meats, and seasonal ingredients into innovative gourmet dishes. Every Monday night, Ines grabs the culinary baton, pulling from her own German heritage to simmer up an authentic menu of traditional German sausages and potato pancakes. Out in the dining room, local artwork festoons the walls, as guests sit around white tablecloths, illuminated by flickering candles that stop passing cavemen dead in their tracks. Outside in the patio, glimmering strands of hanging lights cascade above rows of tabletops and lush plants.

Legend has it that during a high-stakes poker game, Johnny Leverock threw down the winning hand and won a 7-acre Tampa Bay oyster bed. The bed held a surplus of oysters—15,000 bushels a year—leading Johnny to open up his own oyster bar in 1948, which served the seafood-centric recipes his wife Bertha had perfected. Years later, new owners dubbed the eatery Leverock’s Restaurant in homage to the man, keeping the same clam-chowder recipe served on the original menu in 1948. Other standouts include sesame-seed-crusted mahi-mahi, north Atlantic snow crab, and housemade bread pudding. In line with the maritime theme, oversize fish hang from the ceiling in the dining room, and floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramic views of Palm Island and the Intracoastal Waterway.

If you don't know where you are in the U.S., buying a local hot dog might help you find out. Cities from Chicago to New York each put their own stamp on the uniquely American food. Fortunately, you don’t need to get lost on a hitchhiking tour of the country to experience them all. For their menu of signature dogs, the grill masters at Mad Dogs Hot Dogs assembled more than 20 of their favorites from across the nation. They add an extra kick to the Seattle Splitter with jalapenos and BBQ sauce, while crowning the Arkansas Turkey Dog with mozzarella and balsamic dressing.

Of course, they also customize their franks for those not bound to geographical formulas. To create their own meal, customers begin by selecting a dog from 13 options, including bacon-wrapped dogs and the foot-long, half-pound "Monster." Then, they choose from 20 complementary toppings, such as spicy mustard and neon relish, before getting really adventurous with 21 additional toppings that include roast beef and cream cheese.

Though billed as a tour, the event takes place in a three-block stretch of downtown Venice, so attendees can maintain a leisurely pace as they sample the epicurean offerings of the area's finest gourmands. Each locally owned venue offers two portions of their menu, and chefs make themselves available to share their cooking methods so guests don't waste time tearing apart ravioli in search of hidden secrets. As they treat their palates, spectators also take in music, art, and the area's Italian Renaissance-style architecture.

Behind their teppanyaki grilling stations, chefs at Kumo Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi flip lobster tails, filet mignon, and shrimp through the air as diners look on. A short distance away from the hibachi flames, chefs at the sushi bar craft fresh hand rolls based on local catches, such as the cape coral maki with salmon, tuna, and avocado, and the Top of the World roll with yellowtail, scallion, and cucumber. Staffers pour hot and cold sake and imported beer for patrons to quaff when not digging into a noodle bowl. The dining area?s decor teems with Asian accents such as bamboo shoots, a zen-garden-inspired rock wall, and a zen-garden-inspired ball pit.

After spending 33 years saving lives in the firefighting service, Firehouse Sports Grill proprietor Joe Wise collected beloved recipes from stations throughout the country to regale diners with firefighter feasts of burgers and sandwiches, pizzas, and pastas. A bar area decked out in polished aluminum tread plate evokes the raw power of a speeding fire engine, and crimson walls laden with ancient fire axes and keepsake pictures of old emergency crews hark back to a simpler time before fire poles were replaced with teleportation devices. Multiple flat-screen TVs broadcast sporting events as guests sip frosty drafts and potent cocktails and chow down on hand-cut fries, tangy salads, and tender barbecue ribs.
