“In my expert opinion, New York is still the one to watch,” Connors says. “New York is still the epicenter of defining and then creating food trends.”
No wonder, then, that NYC ranks first in the category of "diversity, accessibility and quality," slipping to No. 4 overall only on account of its priciness.
With restaurants and shops from virtually every corner of the planet, each of the five boroughs has something different to offer. Plus, fine dining doesn’t come better; NYC has 93 Michelin stars, more than any other city in the country, and the fifth-most in the world.
