Travel + Leisure: New Orleans #1 In U.S. For Food

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

         “No place beats New Orleans for food,” said T+L reader Charles Grubb. And he wasn’t the only one to share that sentiment.

         The magazine reports 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.”

         The magazine writes, “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.”

         According to Travel + Leisure, 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
