pizza top foodie cities - 370

Which are the top foodie cities in the U.S.? Well, as the researchers at Livability put it, these days "it's almost become harder to find a place that isn't a foodie city." Livability has ranked U.S. cities on the following criteria: number of critically-acclaimed restaurants; residents who prefer independent restaurants; access to healthy food and farmers markets; a low obesity rate; and number of James Beard Award winners. (The list only includes small- to mid-sized cities, so don't expect to see New York or San Francisco.)

8. Burlington, VT

7. Bellevue, WA
