I would say LA, but I would also say New York beats them both.

Miami for all of the above besides Mexican food, that's Los Angeles territory. This is simply a Miami by a mile type of thread, in my opinion.

Is this serious? While L.A. has an abundance, it does not compare to Miami diversity in Latin American food. If it were Mexican food L.A. would win hands down, as Miami lacks it, but when it comes to representing cuisine from the Carribbean, Central America and South America, no one and I mean no one beats Miami in that department, not even New York.

Will anyone challenge this notion?

I was trying to say that Miami is the capital of Latin American culture, food, cuisine, etc, in the U.S., with the exception of Mexican culture/cuisine. I am making a statement and opinion that I believe that Miami represents the most diverse Latin American culture and cusine than any other city. I am not knocking on New York, my bad to include it. I was trying to make a point that if you want to see a place where almost all of the Latin American cultures collide, L.A., NY, Chicago, Houston, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, etc, can't compare what Miami offers in that category. There is really no place like Miami that can compare to the diversity of Latin American citizens it has to any other city.

They don't call Miami the "capital of Latin America" because LA turned down the honor.
