Las Vegas needs to be on the list. St Louis has a fantastic food scene. Not as diverse as Chicago or a first tier city but very good.

Of the above, Austin. But KC and Nashville would be my choices.

Worth noting IMO:

None of the restaurants mentioned in that Zagat "30 Most Exciting Food Cities 2017" writeup on No. 28 Kansas City specialize in barbecue.

Yet that is to KC what cheesesteaks are to Philadelphia - the popular food that everyone eats and that you can find all over the city.

Once again (homer not living there anymore), my forever hometown punches well above its weight.

People rave on Denver's food scene a lot, just like the city get's raved on for a lot of other things. It's good for 1. contemporary chic dining (here's an example Linger - Denver's finest Eatuary) 2. Craft breweries with upscale american fare 3. New Mexican green chili food (although New Mexico and Southern CO still do it better )

Everything else is decently good, but most city has decently good food, thankfully. Restaurant entrepreneurs have really improved dining in the US in the couple decades! Other cities have specialities that Denver doesn't. Who likes what speciality is a matter of taste.

Again, uggg lol, we're confusing CITY with METRO. For example, in 2018 Orlando city has about 250K and Charlotte city about 860K. Big difference. I find it funny that those on this site still struggle with this basic distinction.

Please, ppl from small cities with big city limits stop making this bogus point. By your logic Memphis is bigger than Miami and Atlanta.

Metro population determines the amount and quality of resteraunts in any given CBD within them, most of those are in the principal city limits. Another factor is tourism, Orlando has one of the largest tourist industries in the world, so it is probably going to punch way above its weight.

STK | The ONE Group

Orlando and Denver both have STK locations, that’s interesting.

So do you actually and truly believe that Charlotte and San Francisco are similarly-sized cities?
