I'm a vegetarian, so San Francisco is high on my list for its options.

However, New York tops my list. I found myself in an unusual predicament every day when I was there: I was so hungry, but couldn't decide where I wanted to eat. Eventually I just had to make up my mind and pick a spot.

Absolutely Chicago for me is number one, then New Orleans, San Francisco, Detroit, and Miami.

I can't argue with NYC and SF, but I can't believe no one mentioned Philly yet

I think we all know the big cities like NYC, San Francisco, Philly and Chicago all have tons of good food. How about the smaller cities and towns with great food. Santa Fe was mentioned already and I'll second that one! On the bigger scale, Portland, OR has a fantastic farm-to-table local food scene with great restaurants. Similarly but on a slightly smaller scale, my town of Durham, NC has a very similar foodie culture.

I lived in Flagstaff, AZ from '99-'01 and was worried when moving there that we wouldn't have great restaurants. Boy was I wrong! Not sure if it's still a great food town a decade later but we LOVED dining out in Flag!

As do Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, and Victoria for that matter.

Food is so subjective: I think it depends on what you enjoy: if seafood is your thing, any metro city on either coast, but I prefer the east coast; probably the DC/Baltimore area..I love the variety in Las Vegas, believe it or not. Of course, it goes without saying San Francisco, and yes, Victoria and Vancouver. I would not put New Orleans at the top of the list. Too much of the food is the same, various levels of Cajun. Of course NYC has to be a favorite for variety, but I think the prices are completely nuts...

I simply must add Austin, Texas to this list. Tex-mex and BBQ
