America’s Best Cities for Foodies

Submitted by on February 13, 2012 – 8:40 pmNo Comment

Travel + Leisure readers have picked their best cities for foodies, reports Katrina Brown Hunt.

“Today’s most enthusiastic foodies seek out indulgences well beyond the white-tablecloth variety. Markets are a key enticement for those wanting to experience the nationwide farm-to-table trend,” she reports.

Want to know where that next great meal can come from a celebrity chef or the back of a truck? Here are the top 10 on the T+L list:

Number 10: San Antonio, Texas
“San Antonio ranked in the top 10 for both ethnic fare and barbecue.”

Number 9: Charleston, South Carolina
“This city embraces its traditional low-country cuisine — southern cooking with a heavy dose of coastal oysters, crab, and shrimp.”

No. 8 Savannah, Georgia
“Voters love it best for its small cafés — home-cooking “neighborhood diners” with a local-ingredients bent.”

Number 7: Seattle, Washington
“A hot neighborhood for new restaurants is South Lake Union.”

Number 6: Portland, Oregon
“The super-green city has earned a reputation for its farm-to-table dining, well-crafted microbrews, and 200-odd food trucks.”

Number 5: Chicago, Illinois
“The Windy City ranked in the top 10 for burgers, big-name restaurants, and ethnic cuisine and — perhaps no surprise — took the top prize for pizza.”

Number 4: New York, New York
“New Yorkers can eat well at any price point and have embraced the food trucks and comfort-dining crazes.”

Number 3: Providence, Rhode Island
“Voters love the homey vibe of this New England city: they ranked it third for its hole-in-the-wall cafés, burgers, and pizza (which some locals like grilled).”

Number 2: San Francisco, California
“There are plenty of restaurants serving sustainable, seasonal cuisine.”

Number 1: New Orleans, Louisiana
“New Orleans won the survey for neighborhood cafés, and came in No. 2 for its zesty ethnic fare.”
