A Different Sort Of Map Of L.A. Restaurants

This map shows restaurants in Los Angeles that are identified with one of the 50 states. For Massachusetts there are two places: the Dunkin' Donuts downtown and Malibu Seafood in (where else?) Malibu.

It even lists four California restaurants, one of which is Smittens ice cream which comes from San Francisco.

Missouri gets only one entry, a St. Louis style barbecue. Fortunately, the map also includes a Kansas City, Kansas, barbecue joint: Charcoal Silverlake, although when I look at their website their description of how they cook their meet is not Kansas City style.
