Sometimes it?s not what you eat, but where you eat it. My belief has always been that dining out should be an experience, whether it is at a four-star restaurant or a taco truck on the side of the road. Eating out is often about the atmosphere and who you share the meal with, and the food just an accouterment. One of the best meals I ever had was at a roadside crawfish stand outside of New Orleans with two complete strangers. I learned more about the city and Hurricane Katrina than I would ever had watching television news.
