America’s Best Cities for Food Snobs

The rust belt city offers some old-fashioned, even old-world, charms. Readers ranked it at No. 5 for its rich food halls, like West Side Market-with spices, baked goods and delis-which dates back to 1912, when it catered primarily to the city's immigrants. Today, you can also still tuck into great Polish cuisine-like chicken paprikash, bratwurst, pirogues and stuffed cabbage-at Sokolowski's University Inn, a James Beard American Classic award-winner now in its third generation of family ownership. Still, you don't get into the top 10 by living completely in the past; Cleveland also delighted readers with its trendy street food and bars (like Happy Dog, where hot dogs come with vodka sauerkraut or Bloody Mary ketchup) and upscale, New-American spots like Lola Bistro, run by Iron Chef Michael Symon.
