Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema ranks America’s top-ten food cities[1] and places Philadelphia at number six, ahead of the likes of New York, Chicago and unranked cities including Seattle and Nashville. Portland, Oregon gets Sietsema’s number one spot with San Francisco in the second spot.

Sietsema cites “falling head over heels for the vegan menu at the elegant Vedge restaurant, featuring a whole roasted carrot transformed into a marvelous meatless ‘Reuben.'” as Philadelphia’s defining moment.
