All of those are large metros, not mid-sized. If you consider Charlotte and Denver midzied then New Orleans would also be midsized since its smaller than Charlotte and it would most definitely win. Las Vegas would also be mid sized then having a similar popiulation.

I'd say that Charleston SC and Savannah are the best mid-sized metros for food.

Mid-Sized is between 1.5-3 million for me. I agree that Denver may be considered a big city to most, Charlotte in a decade or so. But thatís quibbling. I just needed to seperate the title in this thread from the other one lol

These are all large cities. I would consider anything between 1-2 million midsize.

He already said what his criteria was for midsized cities (which I tend to agree with)...no need to keep debating it.

That said, I'm tempted to go with Orlando. An outsized tourism industry tends to have an impact on the food scene.

Fair enough. 1.5-3M it is. I think Vegas and Portland should be on here then. And I don't know which one I'd pick as #1 but my top 3 would be Portland, Vegas and Austin.

You left a bunch of cities off the poll that should be in it.

Including Kansas City in addition to those previously mentioned.

If the criteria is 1.5-3 million its Las Vegas, then everyone else. I honestly think people only think of buffets and $9.99 prime rib dinners when it comes to Vegas in so many of these food threads. Iíve eaten in casinos that rival the best restaurants Iíve eaten at in Manhattan, and Iíve had sushi in a suburban strip mall that was as good as anything in Honolulu. Thereís other examples but you catch my drift.

Another poster made a good point about Orlando and the impact tourism makes on the food scene. While I think weíve all eaten crap in tourist traps, or highly overrated places because food just seems to taste better on vacation and people forget this fact when talking about a restaurant, you canít dismiss the impact tourism has. If all things are equal youíll usually find better food in cities with greater tourism. Competition is too great and it forces restaurants to stay on top of their game. It also attracts chefs (established and aspiring) who want to bring their art to a larger/wider audience, and fatten their bank accounts with a greater chance at success. At least this has been my experience when traveling.
