As far as soul food, you'll find better and more in NYC (include all boroughs) than you will in Atlanta. Surprising, but true.

If you're specifically going to a US city for food, I'd be headed to Savannah or San Francisco. If I wanted heavily ethnic, NYC or Washington DC or San Francisco.

Some other reading for you:

The 10 best food cities in America, ranked | The Washington Post
It's true, there is some really good soul food in Harlem. I wish I lived closer to Harlem, since there are also many African restaurants there I want to try that you cant find anywhere else. I would've put Savannah on it too, but Im also excited about the architecture there so the city doesn't fit into "just one reason" category

Thanks for the read! Altho a bit disconcerting seeing NYC at number 8 lol

I'd go to Memphis for no other reason than to check out some historic blues-related landmarks. Other than that it sounds like Memphis is a fairly sub-par place.

I actually think Memphis is one of those very underrated cities (like Cleveland). In addition to the blues-related landmarks you mention, you've got Graceland (a lot more interesting and fun than you realize, even if you're not an Elvis fan), and the ducks at The Peabody Hotel. Some great live music venues and restaurants make it a fun visit.

I travel only for people, and, by golly, they're almost everywhere. 115 countries into my travel, the people I most want to visit again are the Yemenis. Unfortunately, now isn't the time. My heart cries for them.

The last time I was in Amsterdam, I stayed in an AirBNB.. Within a couple of blocks there was a street with at least 3 African Restaurants.. It was awesome!
