Here at Good Monster, we love our food.
One day at lunch we got in a heated debate about which Upstate New York city is packed with the most passionate foodies. Being as none of us could really prove which city had the most fantastic food-friendly residents, we decided to do a little research.
Over the better part of a week, we scoured the internet for the top 10 restaurants in prominent Upstate New York cities, based on online reviews on Urbanspoon.com. Then we analyzed their “social worth” by looking at their Facebook and Twitter followers. Finally we took the number of restaurants and divided that by the total population of the city. This gave us a value of restaurants/person, thus telling us which city has the highest density of restaurants relative to the number of people. By compiling all the info we came up with a ranking for each city and a nifty infographic.
So tell us in the comments below, what are your favorite Upstate New York restaurants?
