America’s Top 10 Cities for Food Lovers
1. Santa Rosa

Local restaurant rate: 80.9%
Population: 472,121

Santa Rosa is the largest city in California Napa Valley, a region synonymous with wine, it's given a great food for the link. What better food to make cheese in wine country?

Popular restaurants are setting Rosso Slow Food Pizza and Wine Bar, Syrah Bistro, French and Cafe Chloe.


Santa Rosa

A city eating action is not only measured by fine dining or Michelin stars, you should also consider the daily food experiences. Is there a unique regional cuisine? Do ethnic enclaves edible estates on the tables of the area? The availability of fresh local produce, meat and fish are other important considerations.

In such discussions, some large cities like New York and New Orleans tend to be appointed, but Sperlings Best Places cracked numbers, using the following city information: the ratio of the local restaurants, chain restaurants, Whole Foods and the number cooking stores, the number of wine shops, wine bars, craft breweries and brew pubs and the number of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farms and local farmers markets. Read more on CNBC.

Portland can probably be named the Pacific Northwest capital-isms: locavorism (with 93 CSA farms and 56 farmers markets), vegetarianism (with an all-vegan market called Foodfight!), And considering it has 97 breweries microbrewism. (That's not a real word, but it's nicer than the other "-ism" joke we abstained from making.) Popular restaurants are Andina, Mother's Bistro & Bar, Portland City Grill, Screen door, and the evil twin to Portland local and organic virtuosity, the sacrilicious Voodoo Doughnuts. To wash down the donuts, the acclaimed Portland Stumptown coffee.
