I just spent a week in Santa Fe and had some of the best food I've eaten in a long time. I don't travel enough to make any huge comparisons but I was impressed with what was offered at the several places I visited. This was Spanish and Italian cuisine. I live in New Mexico so I don't seek out NM food...I get it all the time... but this was different and very good.

I love to eat in New Orleans. I've had great food in San Francisco and also in Baltimore. Outside the US I can't judge since I'm not versed in local cuisine but I've gotten wonderful food in Peru (Cusco, Lima and even Aguas Calientes near Machu Picchu) and in several places in central and northern Italy (Bra, Perugia, Milan, Rome).

Where did you eat? I go to Santa Fe often and have had some good food but nothing really great. Maybe I need to try different places.

Houston. This may surprise some, but Houston is an incredibly cosmopolitan city and is one of the best food destinations around.

You can get near anything you can imagine, and unlike New York, or London, afford to go.

San Francisco/Napa. The French Laundry is still on my list of places to go before I die.
True about Houston. Anything you want, this City has it. Try some crawfish here, fresh seafood all day.
Real texas BBQ, all kinds of asian. All kinds of South American foods, of course the usual Texmex is everywhere.

A Spanish tapas place on Marcy St called La Boca was good - there are a couple Spanish restaurants in that area but I only tried one -- it's smallish. They have maybe a dozen or more sherry varieties and offer flights for tasting. We had a late lunch at Pranzo in the railyards district so I guess we had the lunch menu and it was also good. Both were a little more expensive than what I usually would go for but it was worth the price...I went mid-week and both were quiet...no crowds. Service was very good.

I am a "foodie" and the best food is food I prepare myself. Although, I think New Orleans has the best food I have tasted in the cities I have visited. Second runner up is Las Vegas, NV.

I am a "foodie" and I may be a bit bias in saying this (because I basically live here) but I think Chicago is the best food city I've seen (and I've been to NYC). Avec in the West Loop is probably my favorite restaurant. There are always so many amazing new and exciting restaurants opening here it can be hard to keep track of!

Got into an argument in the DC thread about the same thing. Love Chicago as a food town. Alinea was not in my price range when we lived in the Midwest, and now my wife thinks it is silly to go back to Chicago for a weekend to stuff our faces.

We used to live in Albuquerque, I would agree with you: some good and fun places in Sante Fe, but certainly I would not put it anywhere close to the top cities for reaally good food in the country. and not in the world for sure.
