    Gotta say Cleveland is doing amazing things on farm to table front! So many great places to eat in this town!

    Los Angeles is saturated with many great restaurants, cafes, and food trucks, but I honestly find Chicago to have a more exciting food culture. Los Angeles provides easy accessibility and convenience though. This comes from a Angeleño, too!

    Well, to be fair, "best" and "most exciting" are obviously subjective categories. It seems the author was giving most weight to cities with a wide diversity of food options.
    For what it's worth, my list would include New Orleans. And for a good selection of restaurants featuring locally grown food, Asheville NC is a great place to eat.

    I agree with Jane Wolfe when she says "This has to be the most incorrect piece of journalism I have ever read in my entire life" Obviously the autor would be better in any other thing but writing about food. Probably too young to have enough experience.

    As a Singaporean, I'm really glad to see that this unnoticeable little island had topped the chart, but I do believe other great places have been missed out! How about BARCELONA? Or Madrid? These beautiful Spanish cities never sleep. And not forgetting Naples the motherland of pizza. Paris? Denmark? :)))))

    also the BBQ chicken pizza was developed by Los Angeles.... how could we live with out it.... fucking knobs

    • Erika Starkey

      To each his own haha. Chill dude. how about you amaze us with your own opinion of a top 10 list? :)

    this is so bad. Thailand has some of the best food i have ever had. Also Los Angeles is nopt the best fr allot of those cusines, i would put melbourne, australia up against all of it except the mexican. Melbourne also has great coffee allot of Aussies doing really well in London with great coffee houses.

  • Jane Wolfe

    This has to be the most incorrect piece of journalism I have ever read in my entire life. For the ultimate food pilgrimage - visit New Orleans. Yes, I'm a native.

    Saigon deserves an honorable mention for its mix of South East Asian and French flavors.

  • leonardomreis

    Wonder why São Paulo (Brazil) is not in the list. Maybe because South America is not considered a gourmet destination, or because English is not well spoken in the country as in the destinations listed in this article. Well, it has a large number of the best 100 restaurants of the world, and even a larger number of young chefs.

      Melbourne, São Paulo, NOLA, Ho Chi Minh City, Chicago.... What other cities are food pilgrimage-worthy right now and why? Let's go for top twenty.

      • Sarah Johnson

        Exactly what I was thinking! Chicago may be my home city, but it also gets many nods for being a foodie's dream come true.
