Regional Foods Face-Off — America's Best Cook Bracket Challenge, Round 2

Among the many things that define the United States, foods are at the top of that list. And every region has its specialty, whether it is lobster rolls from the East, chili from the North, shrimp and grits from the South or tacos from the West. On the new series America's Best Cook, Sundays at 9|8c, home cooks from the four corners of the country have come to Food Network headquarters to be mentored by FN chefs and battle it out for a chance at winning the title of America's Best Cook.

To coincide with the show, FN Dish has launched the Regional Foods Face-Off, a bracket challenge in which you, the fans, can vote for your favorite regional food. The editors have narrowed it down to four famous dishes from each of the regions, but after four rounds of voting, only one dish will come out on top. Round 2 is now closed. Vote in Round 3.

Now it's up to you, Food Network fans, to vote for the regional dish you think has the most merit.

Here's how it works:

In Round 1, you voted on 16 dishes to narrow them down to eight.

In Round 2, starting today, you get to vote on the remaining eight dishes to narrow them down to four.

In Round 3, starting April 24, you'll get to vote on the remaining four dishes to narrow them down to two.

And in Round 4, starting May 1, you'll vote for one of the final two, and the winner will be announced on May 8.

Vote below by selecting one dish from each group.
