    Yes, but those are greater areas. How many people are driving from Tacoma to downtown Seattle for dinner? How many people in Crossfield dine on Stephen ave?
    Obivously, very few. I still think comparing a large urban hub (i.e., real city) like Houston or Seattle - or a major tourist destination like Nashville, for that matter - to Calgary is comical, at best.

    Size doesn't matter (giggity) as long as there's expendable income.

    Nashville, Memphis, Houston, Seattle, Portland all have better dining choices with smaller populations. I've never been on vacation in any of these either (for the "vacation effect"), and most of my work trips were never vacation like either.

    I'm not shitting on Calgary, as said it's just "good and accessible".
    Don’t care about the food conversation, but you are an idiot if you think those cities have a smaller population then Calgary….holy F.

    Well Calgary is special because the metropolis is essentially the greater area too. Like in most places Calgary would be split into five cities at the very least, with Aspen being walled off.

    There are maybe 2 cities on that list I would consider setting foot in, let alone expect a decent meal.

    Houston has an incredible food scene. Probably top 3 or 4 in the US after sf and NY. Maybe la

    Rouge was terrible if you ask me, horrible ambiance and the food was so so.

    I haven’t been to Sukiyaki House in ages.

    Ruth’s Chris I could never get the urge to try, reminded me of the Keg haha.

    Bottom line is I think everyone has their own opinion.

    I do feel Calgary is starting to get a decent selection of restaurants.

    For me I prefer quality over quantity, a large plate of food doesn’t equate to value for me.

    Excellent preparation, presentation & flavour far exceeds the amount of food for me.

    Check out the Omakase we did at Unami Noodle Bar, incredible spread.

    Unami Noodle Bar

    3 posts covering it all

    Anyways carry on haha.

    Or if you really want to ball out, a guy could fill the King Eddy for a private function and open bar. I'm guessing your tab was a tad bit higher than the $95 lunches from back in the day......
    I like neat cars.

    I'll listen to that argument. Houston is more international/ethnic while Chicago has more fine dining

    True. To be fair, I wasn't necessarily questioning your inclusion of Houston, but the ommision of Chicago from the list... Happy to agree that top 5 are probably SF, LA, Houston, Chicago and NY.

    It also depends what you're looking for in a food scene. LA has amazing ethnic food, but for the size and wealth in the area, relatively disappointing fine dining options.

    Edit - all of which has a bunch to do with where Suntan should have dinner this weekend.

    BTW - Happy Birthday Suntan!

    LA (and the greater tri-county area) is so fucking overrated as a dining hub.

    I think he may have accidentally made a clever joke about Seattle/Tacoma and Toyota Tacoma... Maybe.

    Either way, Tacoma FD is a fucking excellent TV show!

    yup, we're on the same page. no real sense in not doing it as a top5 since those are so far ahead of the rest.
