Florida Foodie Eats Youngstown

Often, an outsider will help you appreciate local assets:

In line with the community's effort to change its image, the city government along with the university (Youngstown State University), has organized an urban renewal project titled Youngstown 2010, which makes this an up and coming city. Part of its redevelopment is to attract more business in the area. With the redevelopment in progress, small businesses are starting to develop.

Rosetta Stone Cafe and Wine Bar is just one of the new and upcoming restaurants in the heart of the downtown district. Offers a modern american cuisine and live music. My friends and I had a wonderful meal and the live music was a plus.

The blogger of the restaurant review lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, which just so happens to be a Greater Youngstown Diaspora hot spot.

    That's terrific. I also wonder how outsiders perceive our distinctive, family-owned pizza places here. My husband (who grew up in Kentucky and is now an honorary Youngstowner) loves that our plentiful and delicious mom-and-pop pizza places give chains like Pizza Hut and Little Caesars a run for their money!

  2. I don't think outsiders know much at all about Youngstown pizza. It's a well-kept secret that shouldn't be so secret. My mom tells me that Erie, PA has great (and distinctive) family pizza joints. Also, I keep seeing New Haven, CT come up as a pizza haven.

    Is there a pizza blog unearthing all these gems?
