If you go out to dinner at all, you probably face that age-old question of where to go. If you’re like us, you often go to the same places, and they are most likely of the cuisines (American, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, etc.) with which you are comfortable.

Each culture’s cuisine is, in a way, the face of that culture. And even though this issue is our guide to the area’s cultural arts, we’ll give you 10 suggestions on trying out the cuisine — and culture — of a different country simply by going to an area restaurant. My husband and I haven’t tried most of these yet, but they’re on my list so that when he next asks, “Where do you want to go for dinner,” I’ll have an answer.
