NYC - New Orleans - San Francisco

NYC has the sheer numbers in variety & money to attract the best worldwide, whether famous or starting out. San Fran is the little brother but so many people want to live there that it has a disproportionate amount of talent in most creative fields including food plus a varied ethnic population makeup esp. Asian. New Orleans is the unique American treasure unlike anyplace else in the country.

charleston sc has to be on that list. this is a restaurant town with several nationally acclaimed places in a metro area 0f 500K. regular food events (restaurant week, oyster roasts, food and wine festival, food truck rodeos). great regional cuisine--southern, low country, modern southern, sea food, farm to table, etc... new places don't make it on the peninsula if they aren't "killing it" with good ingredients and top execution.

I voted San Francisco since I have been there and the restaurants were amazing. However I think NYC had some great restaurants as well and so does Chicago.

There's still a lot of great restaurants here. Not to mention carts and trucks...

Portland. It's SF at half price. Also Montreal, haven't been but the Bourdain episode there was mind-blowing. Foie and shaved truffle on everything. And how could you forget about Chicago? But really, almost any decent-sized city these days will have enough restaurants of a certain caliber to keep you entertained for a few days. Food culture is undergoing a renaissance across the nation.

NYC is the #1 food hub in the US. Period. And I'm not even partial to NYC for any reason at all. NYC is even one of the top food cities in the entire world.

Yes, it's unapologetically decadent, but bear in mind, you can't eat like that every day.
Sometimes supper is a hunk of fresh baguette, some artisanal cheese (we make over 300 different kinds), a glass of wine and some fresh fruit.
