New Orleans Ranked #1 in the USA for Food


The readers of Travel + Leisure have once again voted New Orleans the Best City for Food in the United States, in their 2016 “World’s Best” survey.

The magazine writes: “No place beats New Orleans for food,” said T+L reader Charles Grubb. And he wasn’t the only one to share that sentiment. Finding restaurants in New Orleans is an easy task, and they range from casual sandwich shops (serving impossibly good po’boy sandwiches) to venerable institutions with legendary menu items (think: Brennan’s turtle soup).” Just saying NOLA brings to mind powdery beignets (or Coquette’s visionary carrot cake version) and spicy gumbo. Visitors have to try acclaimed Creole classics. And if it’s crawfish season? Then you shouldn’t have any questions about what to eat in New Orleans.

The Top 10 Best Cities for Food in the USA are:
1. New Orleans
2. Charleston
3. New York City
4. San Francisco
5. Chicago
6. Savannah
7. Sante Fe
8. Austin
9. Portland, Oregon
10. Portland, Maine
