If you were picking any two cities – one in the U.S. and one overseas – that you would tell someone they absolutely had to eat, what would they be?
Tokyo would probably be the foreign city if I had to eat one city’s food for the rest of my life, every day. It would have to be Tokyo, and I think the majority of chefs you ask that question would answer the same way.
In America, there might be better gastronomic destinations than New Orleans, but there is no place more uniquely wonderful. So I would say New Orleans. With the best restaurants in New York, you’ll find something similar to it in Paris or Copenhagen or Chicago. But there is no place like New Orleans. So it’s a must see city because there’s no explaining it, no describing it. You can’t compare it to anything. So, far and away New Orleans.
Phoenix - “Entertainment”
So ready for Jazz Fest! This is one fest that gets it. In order to stay relevant and profitable, they have to target the younger crowds. One can’t live off the “Baby Boomers” too long. No pun intended. Just ask brands like Toyota, Lexus, & Buick. Noticed how more aggressive the styling of their cars are lately? I agree Baby Boomers do have more disposable income though.
