I'm always skeptical about being able to obtain high quality seafood in the midwest. We can get ok stuff, but nothing like the coasts. At the same time, I have family that live in Virginia Beach, and whenever they come home, they bring about 4 coolers to fill up w/steak and pork chops. They claim they just can't meat (especially beef) out there as good as it is here.
See, I've never understood this whole line of reasoning. Once the stuff is caught, killed, and cut up, does it matter that it has to take a 3 hour flight, or spend a day or two in a truck?
I think a lot of the regional perceptions are from a time when food was very regional. Sweet corn that is sold on a street corner that came straight from Grimes, is a bit different story, I suppose.
That being said, there is something more enjoyable about eating fresh seafood near the sea than eating it near Gray's lake.
