RNC vs. DNC: Convention City Foods Worth Your Votes

By Matt Swenson, July 21, 2016

This year’s presidential race may be leaving a bad taste in your mouth, but that doesn’t have to extend to the eats in Cleveland (home to the Republican National Convention, July 18-21) or Philadelphia (Democratic National Convention, July 25-28). Here’s what to order in each city.

CLEVELAND

Corned Beef Sandwich

There’s no debate over which corned beef sandwich is best in Cleveland. Consider the long line in front of Slyman’s good practice for November.

Cleveland Nachos

Depending on what candidate you support, you may need some comforting. There’s no better comfort food than Fahrenheit’s fried, sliced potatoes topped with Parmesan fondue, Romano cheese and bacon.

Bratwurst

The ugly campaigns put a spotlight on how the (political) sausage is made. The real thing at Frank’s in West Side Market is far easier to digest.

Chicken Paprikash

Here’s your chance to indulge in a dish that’s richer than Donald Trump: ClubHouse Pub and Grub’s sauce (flavored by the most red of spices) is perfect for a true Republican foodie.
