Nat Geo believes that everyone loves food, and the less you know about what’s on offer in a place, the more locals want to help you. We tend to agree. A hungry person finds it easiest to break the ice and strike a conversation with locals, anywhere across the globe, including USA.
Here are 4 amazing places where you can enjoy the choicest eclectic cuisines within the United States:

It serves amazing North Indian food, 1 meal of which is enough to last you a whole day. The most popular dishes here are the chicken tikka masala, shahi paneer and stuffed aloo parathas.

It’s not often that an Indian restaurant can be described as sexy, but Junoon, located in New York City, manages to achieve that tag. With brilliantly planned and executed lighting and upholstery, beautiful pools with blossoming lotus flowers and more, this place is as elegant as it is tasty regarding the food served. Hyderabadi chicken korma, goat cheese and mango cheesecake are the most sought after dishes here, and the restaurant has a well-deserved Michelin star.
