For those interested in a tour of American cuisine history, Petoskey is the place to go. Nineteenth-century buildings still stand, repurposed for the modern age with countless small restaurants offering various cuisine experiences. For breakfast, try pancakes and eggs supported by ample pieces of bacon. Lunch could be fresh perch covered in a rich batter amply applied, accompanied by hush puppies and a zippy coleslaw. The tartar sauce is a fresh homemade dill concoction that is unknown elsewhere. Finish your American cuisine day with dinner, beginning with a buffalo cauliflower appetizer and an entree of a 9-ounce lobster tail, buttered and covered in a smooth garlic sauce. Move on to a prime rib steak with a unique horseradish dip and mashed potatoes covered in wholesome prime rib gravy.
