Philly has better food than NYC in general. Of course the cheesesteak is better in Philly... we invented it.

Philly has the best cheesesteak, hands down. The "good" cheesesteak places in NYC truck their bread in from Philly.

Pizza is a different story.

Obviously Philly. Philly has the best cheesesteaks, and NYC has the best cheesecakes!

I'm from Philly and I have yet to have a good steak OR hoagie in NYC in 7 years! It's mainly the specific type of bread, and people just not putting things together right. Philly wins hands down on its own food (pretzels too!).

(Not sure why it came up in this thread) But I have to say that for the most part, not counting some newschool gourmet type places, pizza in Philly is pretty lousy on average.

And overall, you definitely get better bargains on fancy restaurants in Philly, but I wouldn't say the actual food was necessarily better. Argue with the Michelin guide about that if you want. Philly definitely holds its own on food, but NY wins in many genres (highbrow & lowbrow) on quality, variety, and service.
The only type of (non-Philly) food I'd comfortably say was categorically better in Philly than NY is Vietnamese.

A cheesesteak in NYC? Forget about it. Only place I've had a decent cheesesteak outside the Philly area was a place in Florida run by a guy from Pittsburgh (and it's closed now). And most Manhattan pizza is pretty lousy, as is most Philly pizza. But there are exceptions in Philly and Manhattan, like Lorenzos on South Street. And of course there's good pizza in Brooklyn.
