Philly Named One Of The Best Food Cities In America

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – File this under awesome.

Once again, Philadelphia was ranked among the top food cities in the country. This time the City of Brotherly Love was recognized by the Washington Post.

The article says, "Helping fuel the fun: entrepreneur Stephen Starr, whose 21 local restaurants pulled in 2.6 million patrons last year. Williams-Sonoma has nothing on the charm and variety stocked by Fante's Kitchen Shop in the historic Italian Market. Bottom line: The City of Brotherly Love knows how to cook, eat and drink."

Philly was ranked number 6 on the top 10 list, beating out both New York and Chicago.

Portland, Oregon was ranked the top food city.
