    As a resident of Virginia, it’s way too high. DC food scene is getting better, but it’s still very much overrated and has yet to trickle into northern va.

    I'm not Anthony Bourdain by any means, but I've been to many of the most popular and upscale restaurants in Manhattan and more often than not I am very underwhelmed. I really never go to Brooklyn, that seems to be where most of the food I would enjoy most is, but I have dined in other states and had many meals just as good if not better than these hyped NYC restaurants.

    Article is dead on about Oklahoma and their fried onion burger and fried catfish. Where it went wrong though is underestimating just how damn good those are.

    I agree with the above about the overhyped places. The sheer quantity of amazing restaurants in NYC blows away any other city I’ve ever been.

    I’m sure there are 10 restaurants I’ve never heard of that you could recommend that would compare to the top 10 restaurants in any other city and vice versa

    I'm not making this argument that Kansas has good food, but I know there's enough solid BBQ on their side of state line for 40 to be too low.

    They aren't the original, but there is a Bryant's and a Q39 over here, plus the undisputed best joint in the city is only on the KS side.

    That said, the presence of a single Gates in KS probably hurts this ranking.
