Which city do you think has best sushi (both quality and quantity)?

I'd guess NYC. Maybe San Francisco or Seattle.

Thoughts?

Good thought! Hawaii has a huge Japanese population.

I would say that most major cities in the U.S. have at least a couple of outstanding sushi restaurants. I would venture to say that a place like SF or Honolulu has a larger number of quality sushi restaurants than other equivalent east coast cities. But it is hard to say that the "best" sushi restaurants in DC, Atlanta, or NYC (and there are some truly outstanding ones in each of these cities) is better or worse than the "best" sushi restaurant in west coast cities with larger japanese populations.

Seattle, most likely. Maybe even L.A.

Los Angeles easily wins this contest mostly due to the large # of Japanese-Americans who live there compared with any other US city. You'd think San Francisco would be good, but it really isn't that great. Thankfully, it's getting better.

The cities with the biggest Japanese communities are L.A., San Fran, Honolulu, and Seattle. Therefore, you will find the best sushi in those 4 cities. It's the same concept with other regional cuisines.

NYC- big Italian population= excellent Italian food.

Texas and California - large Mexican population= excellent Mexican restaurants.
