Every place where there's a Vietnamese restaurant, so every decent sized city I've ever been to. That's Vietnam's colonial history. I can think of three off the top of my head just in the Allston neighborhood of Boston. Dude, if you're going to throw stuff out like that at least make it hard.

OK! you've done your homework! Well then you know that according to all respected source there are only five 5 star restaurants in New York, and 3 in Chicago(that's how rare they are on this side of the pond) and NONE in Boston! Case closed!

And by the way, I said FRENCH VIETNAMESE! You are aware that all Vietnamese restaurants aren't French.

Default wtf people

Are you kidding about 5 star restaurants in Boston? Ever heard of L'Espalier? There are MANY 5 star restaurants in Boston, however they tend to be less flashy and highly advertised as ones in places like Chicago, where people still feel the need to prove that they are cultured.

Oh spare me your pathetic attempt to appear as if you have 'culture' or a clue. Those who were brought up properly, taught to view the world with an open mind, and truly have culture do not succumb to cheap provincialism.

Of course there are excellent restaurants in Boston, I've had the pleasure of eating at more than a few over the years (I have a lot of family from there), just as there are excellent restaurants in Chicago.

I had to add to this, I had relatives that live in Florida that visited Chicago and a colleague from work and they both said the same thing, that Chicago is extremely clean, especially downtown.
