Travel Contributor Elaine Labalme Offers Food Destinations for the Holiday Travel Season

Leigh Kelsey

Congratulations, you just made it through the biggest eating holiday of the year!

With the fridge full of leftovers, the last thing you probably want to talk about is food, right? Well, travel contributor Elaine Labalme, is here to talk about some food destinations in the region worth visiting.

When Elaine is in Cleveland, OH, she never misses a chance to eat at Melt Bar and Grilled

What better place to try some farm-to-table cuisine than Lancaster, PA? John J. Jefferies is destination dining for those who like to eat local.

In Philadelphia, Elaine says she goes out of her way to eat a Paesano's Philly Style Sandwich, even though she considers them "a heart attack waiting to happen." 
Elaine says the hardwood barbecued chicken and ribs at Clem's Cafe in Blairsville, PA  is so good, the meat actually falls off the bone.

Another local favorite for Elaine is Little Tokyo Restaurant in Mt. Lebanon.
