I don't know about you, but the only thing that makes traveling bearable is eating good food. I have to eat out and I'm getting reimbursed (to some extent), why not take advantage. Here's a partial list to where I have been lately:

New Orleans
Lucy's Retired Surfer Bar & Restaurant - Ceviche tacos
Mothers - Breakfast

Chicago
Gino's East - Chicago style pizza
Armands - Thin crust pizza
Zias - Northern Italian
Frontera Grill - Mexican
Don Juans - Mexican
Weiner Circle - Chicago style dog
Nookies - Breakfast

Los Angeles
Katsuya - Sushi
Falafel King - Falafel
Fat Burger - Vanilla shake

Madison
Frabonis - Italian sub
Lulus - Falafel

Cininnati
Nothing so far, not a fan of Skyline

Milwaukee
Elsas on the Park - Club sandwich
Teds - Breakfast, chocolate malt

Dayton
Nothing so far

What and where do you recommend?

You can't go to Chicago and not try Numero Uno.

Boston:
Dali (actually in Somerville) Spanish. Best for smaller groups. Try Pulpo en su Tinto. Downside: small waiting/bar area and no reservations. Upside: small waiting/bar area (you get to know the other diners quickly while everyone quaffs the house sangria).

Doyle's (Jamaica Plain). Old place off the beaten track, not a plastic paddy tourist trap. Agreeable food and good beer. Great atmosphere and steeped in history. A favorite amongst Boston pols.

San Francisco:
Mission Chinese - if you love spicy food it doesn't get better than this. Amazing food with a no frills dining experience.

Boston -
Cragie on Main - Hands down. BEST burger I've had and I've tried a lot of burgers.
Picco - Awesome pizza. Handmade ice cream. And great beer selection. Whats not to love.

Los Angeles:
Golden State Burger: Second best burger I've ever had. Also the Supreme store across the street has a suspended bowl inside it.
Pizzaria Mozza- best thin crust pizza I've had. Owned by Mario Batali
Johnnie's Pastrami Restaurant - If you're in Culver City Stop by Awesome pastrami sandwich.
Roscoes - Chicken and Waffles - Even ludacris has a shout out in one of his songs to this place.

Seattle:
Spinasse - AMAZING pasta. If you dont mind sitting at the "bar." I reccomend it as you can watch them handmake the pasta. One of the best overall meals I've ever had.
Shiros - Amazing sushi. Omakase all the way.

Fort Worth -
Lonesome Dove - I was about to lick the bowl, thats how good their Chile is. Lots of wild game dishes. Iron Chef Tim Love.

Since Shiro's has popped up a few times for Seattle, I'm sure it will be full of Core77 readers, so as an alternative I would suggest Sushi Kappo Tamura (or just Tamura) over on Eastlake. Very authentic, very attentive, and of course you should order the omakase.

Chicago - I really like The Gage, across from Millenium Park. The rabbit salad, oh boy.

@jacob fleisher I'm so glad to hear Dali is still around! Right when I started to be able to eat out properly I discovered Dali. House sangria yes, saffron shrimp yes, but how about one night when the owner's friends were in town (they are Argentinian I believe) and were professional tango dancers. They cleared all the tables from the front room and let them perform after closing. Warm generous smiles and full bellies all around.

Honolulu: Yes Duke's sucks but go for a mai tai or two and forget about all the tourists. There is a charm all its own.
