San Francisco is eclectic and those gourmet shops are wonderful. Oh, those cheese places.

New Orleans and the surrounding area have at least two (perhaps as many as five depending upon how you define them) cuisines found nowhere else. French technique with local ingredients, e.g., Oysters Rockefeller.

These are the cities where food is a religion; they're the best. Which is your favorite?

Only two choices? There are many smaller cities such as Charleston or Memphis that have great food scenes.

Food is a religion here.
Even our food trucks HAVE to serve gourmet fare. It's the law. I'm not kidding.

Wouldn't this be better as an open question, rather than a poll with two choices?

I've neither been to San Fran or New Orleans, but I'd imagine I could find something tasty in either city. I do have a soft spot for NYC. There's literally something for everyone. You've got restaurants that cater to just about every ethnicity; you've also got chains and more familiar offerings for those who want to play it safe. You have your high-end venues, and you have the food trucks, hot dog carts, and fresh roasted nuts. Good lord, I am getting hungry and really eager to go back to the city.

San Francisco, between the two.

Both.

I'd put SF in first only because I know it better but I suspect many Nawliners would dispute that claim.

New Orleans. Food is more centered and engrained in their culture.

Correction: New Orleanians. Pronounced: N'orlinnians.
You can probably guess which city got my vote.

I would tend to think there are a million less popular places where the food is "that good". An example that comes to mind is Pilot Butte burgers in Bend, Oregon.

The ethnic diversity of San Francisco lends to a true exploration of culinary delights.
