Which is the best "food town" in America?

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of spending a couple of days in San Francisco with more than a dozen other food bloggers from around North America, courtesy of the fantastic folks at Chowzter. San Diego, New York City, Vancouver, Charleston, Los Angeles, Buffalo, Philadelphia, Portland, Toronto, Savannah, Orlando, & other cities were represented. I learned much more about the food scenes in each of the places and was impressed by how diverse each of these places is, food-wise.

Being around so much food talk and seeing various dishes from each of these places has me pondering which is the best food town in America. By "food town," what do I mean? Not exactly sure. Maybe it means the place with the most options. Or the most diverse options. Or simply the best options. I really don't know. I'll leave it to you to decide and answer, but I guess what I'm getting at is, if you're a food lover, which city is tailor-made for you?

I thought it had already been decided! Portland, Oregon!

Ha!!! Omeica, I was wondering if you'd remind me of that.

Vegas. If you avoid the buffets, some of the best chefs in the world have some amazing restaurants there. Unfortunately, I have not found any good barbecue there.

I agree with your Houston reco, Drew. Great variety and quality of cuisine. Good prices to boot.
