I don't even think this is a close one. Yes, we have great eating towns: Chicago, LA, San Francisco, New Orleans, Charleston, etc etc. ,but there is only one that towers over the rest. For sheer quality and variety nobody beats it. And no one has more Michelin star restaurants. NEW YORK.

Agreed. New York has a little of everything, a taste of the entire country and beyond. You can even get Hatch green chile there (for a price), and people coming over from abroad bringing family recipes, even today, bring more diversity to an already robust cuisine.

NYC, SF Bay Area, LA, Chicago, and New Orleans, in that order.

Seattle belongs here for some of the best seafood.

Also, some of the best Mexican food can be found in San Diego.

What's also fun in NYC is when cultures combine. I work in Brooklyn in the largest Orthodox Jewish community outside of Israel. Great food in the neighborhood, especially for a vegetarian like me, due to the kosher separation of dairy and meat products. But what if an observant Jew wants Chinese food? Well, hey, you've got China Glatt on 13th Avenue! Same with kosher pizza places. One of the delis has a sushi bar, also.

Cleveland has a pretty great food scene. Just saying. My boss from Dallas/San Diego says our restaurants are much better than theirs, and there are a lot more unique ethnic restaurants (and fewer chains).

New Orleans, then Chicago, then St. Louis. Yes, St. Louis! Do not sleep on St. Louis, I lived there for 4 years and that was almost the only aspect of the city I enjoyed.


St. Louis is geographically and culturally situated to an extent where it bleeds into a variety of cuisines.

New Orleans is def number especially for it's size. NYC and Chicago are great as well but those are massive cities.

I would agree with St Louis. It is not on the level of Chicago or New York City. I would place it on a second tier of cities.
