What's Columbus, OH, got going for it? According to The Washington Post, a lot. It's poised to become America's next big food city. Writes Jane Black, "The once-conservative Ohio capital has blossomed into a certified food lovers' town, with serious cocktails and microbrews, pastries worthy of Paris, fantastical ice cream flavors . . . and extraordinary food shopping."
The boldness of her statement got me thinking about what other US locales have proven themselves worthy food destinations. I'd personally argue Austin, TX — it's known for everything from barbecued brisket to crêpes to breakfast tacos. What town do you think has what it takes to become America's next big food city?
