What Is New York State's Best Food City?
There is always all sorts of lists, master lists, food blogs, and of course people opinions of what is the Food City of each state. News and education site “MediaFeed” put their list “The Greatest Food City in Every State” out for 2023. To be very honest, we’re disappointed with who was selected for New York. Why? Because it seems like a lazy choice.
For New York State, they selected New York City:
Foodie Score: 83.2 (44% higher than state average)
Restaurants per 100,000 residents: 108.3
Food and dining price index: 100.0"
With their data it makes sense, but it's always a kick to the rest of us who live in Upstate, or anywhere else in New York State, who don't get selected. Each region has amazing dishes of their own, New York City has pizza?
