Lists of Favorite Local Restaurants Across the U.S., Canada, and UK (#cbias)


Earlier this month, I had shared my list of my 10 Favorite Family-Friendly Restaurants In and Near Framingham and told 3G2S readers to keep an eye out for similar lists for areas all across the country.  Well, here it finally is!  These lists were not created by food critics, but rather by bloggers from the U.S., Canada, and the UK, who have enjoyed eating at these establishments with their spouses, children, friends, and loved ones.  Thank you to Collective Bias for organizing this Social Fabric Local Restaurants Blog Hop and for inviting me to participate.  I found this to be a wonderful chance to support some of our favorite local restaurants, many of which are small and family-owned.

Be sure to bookmark this list for easy reference for the next time you plan to travel to any of the following regions.  You may just find yourself looking for a good place to eat!
