An Upper West Side staple for more than 75 years, Zabar's is a gourmet food market that houses a huge assortment of New York favorites such as bagels, crusty bread, deli meats and some of the best lox in the city. Giada recommends the smoked-salmon paté for a picnic in nearby Central Park.
Duo Steak and Seafood offers a decadent dinner menu, but breakfast here is also a treat. Giada went to experience the "gigantic breakfast buffet," loading up her plate with island-fresh fruit like pineapple and papaya and a Macadamia Nut Pancake with a "little crunch but it melts in your mouth."
Host Giada De Laurentiis digs into burgers and pizza at Revolution Bar & Grill, in Seattle, WA, on Food Network's Giada's Weekend Getaways.
Located in the heart of Napa Valley and known for its comfortable but elegant setting, Cindy's is a local favorite and a top stop for tourists. Enjoy your dinner alfresco on the patio with flatbread or a salad to start followed by the wood-oven duck, which Giada calls a perfect home-cooked meal.
Giada DeLaurentiis settles in at The Blue Door, the sexy seafood restaurant at the Delano in Miami Beach, FL, on Food Network's Giada's Weekend Getaways.
For Bobby's FoodNation stop in Miami, he heads to the legendary Joe's Stone Crab shop where the flavor is all in the claw. Since 1913, Joe's has delivered these claws with the simple yet oh-so-tasty chilled mustard sauce. But for a real chilly treat, try Joe's Original Homemade Key-Lime pie.
On Food Network's Giada's Weekend Getaways, host Giada De Laurentiis stops by Boston's oldest grocery store, Deluca's Market, serving the best deli sandwiches in Boston, MA since 1905.
On Food Network's Giada's Weekend Getaways, host Giada DeLaurentiis visits 8100 Mountainside Bar & Grill for the delicious, local foods and Colorado's best microbrews and wine at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa, in Avon, CO.
Both Bobby and Giada have two-stepped at this iconic country bar where legends like Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton have made the rounds. The dance hall perfectly captures Austin's charm, but the menu branches out with its famous chicken fried steak, Mexican enchiladas and even brick-oven pizzas.
When Giada is in Los Angeles, she makes sure to visit the Susina Bakery and Café for lunch. One of the café's most popular sandwiches is its beautiful and nutritious Brie and Pear Panini with spinach, onion and balsamic vinaigrette, which Giada calls ''heaven.''
For the best fried seafood around, The Bite in Menemsha, Mass., is the crispy, fresh and piping hot answer. This cash-only, roadside shack is known for its fried fare, especially the belly clams; there are no clam strips here. A meal is best taken to go, on the beach with a side of "Bite" fries.
Regular sunsets are so been-there-done-that. At dusk from mid-March to November, you can watch as bats flood the sky from under the Congress Bridge. TRIO at Four Seasons Hotel offers the perfect perch for a bat watch, and Giada enjoyed it with the award-winning "Batini" made with juicy blackberries.
On her weekend trip to Austin, Giada started off at South Congress Cafe where it's a little less country and a lot more chic. Chic decor or not, it still serves big Texas flavors, like Giada's rich carrot cake and French toast with pecan cream cheese frosting or the locals' favorite: crab cakes.
Giada De Laurentiis dines on seasonal and artisanal fare at Elements, in Santa Barbara, CA, overlooking the Santa Barbara Courthouse and Sunken Gardens, on Food Network's Giada's Weekend Getaways.
Ina's vacation to Napa had to include a stop at Oakville Grocery. The store offers more than just specialty gourmet items; it also has a number of inspired prepared salads and sandwiches made with local California produce. Ina couldn't resist grabbing a loaf of crunchy Della Fattoria bread.
