All you need to know about this "Best of" list is in the comments that follow the article -
First, this is a survey of the readers
of Travel and Leisure Magazine. One can extrapolate data to draw the conclusion that the readers of said magazine are morons, but that is still subjective. Further, they ONLY ask readers to include 35 cities
. Alas, that leaves one of the country's pizza Meccas out of any possible inclusion in their "rankings." Bragging about Orlando's placement of 20th on a list of 35surveyed cities (which already culls out quite a few that would handily place higher than Orlando) hardly seems worthwhile. Lastly, this is regurgitated news from 2012 that appears to have been re-issued this month. Get used to this kind of lazy faux journalism going forward as newspaper and magazine staffs tamp down their staffs.
Personally, I get far more useful information from local food blogs than I do anywhere from what was once considered the "mainstream" media. Lazy people use lazy journalism as their source material.
