Boston has been named this year’s #2 Best Food City in America!
Insert all of the pictures of lobstah rolls, clam strips, and clam chowdah here. The world looks at us like a seafood tasting table. Mostly a deep fried and creamy AF tasting table – but a tasting table nonetheless.
Travel Awaits polled their travel-savvy readers asking them “what are the best food cities from coast to coast in the United States?” and the conversation began. Travel Awaits took reader opinion and trends to put together their yearly list of The 15 Best Food Cities in the US list for 2023… and Boston, you did smashingly!
Boston was named the #2 Best Food City in the US for 2023, only losing to New Orleans and all of their beignets and po’boys and gumbo which took first place.
Kansas City, Missouri, New York, New York (how repetitive) and Chicago, Illinois round out this year’s Top 5 Best Food Cities in America. Check out the complete culinary countdown RIGHT HERE.
Travel Awaits cited Boston’s lobster rolls, craft beers, and Italian Eats as the reasons why it took the runner up spot on this year’s foodie countdown.
While we’re mentioning those “Italian Eats,” another travel publication, Travel and Leisure, just named Boston’s North End as the #1 Best Little Italy Neighborhood in the U.S. and one North End restaurant recently got some super high praise, making Tasting Table’s 2023 list of the 20 Best Italian Restaurants in the U.S. Curious what that restaurant is so you can try to line up a tasty reservation? We’ll give it to you below.
I’ll also give you some Massachusetts honorable mentions – these are some Italian restaurants you should definitely check out if you haven’t already. Then we’ll finish off with the North End restaurant that was named one of the Best Italian Restaurants in America!
