Top Eating and Drinking Areas in the USA

Statistical information on retail dining and drinking trends.

Aug. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- FriendsEAT contributor, Spence Cooper, analyzes statistical information from Trulia Trends on retail dining and drinking trends in the United States. The information points towards how geographical differences in the USA affect dining and drinking cultures in different areas.

According to their research, cities that are located near the ocean (on both Atlantic and Pacific coasts),  have the highest concentration of restaurants. Leading the list are San Francisco, Fairfield County (Connecticut), and Long Island in New York. New York City proper made 4th on the list. Even more intriguing is that San Francisco has twice the restaurants as its runner up, Fairfield County.

Jed Kolko, who conducted the research, notes that homes in these regions tend to be more expensive because affluent people are willing to pay more to be in metropolitan areas with better dining choices. Correlation may not imply causation, it could also be that restaurateurs open where their clientele is located.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, the top drinking towns tend to be land locked. New Orleans topped the list, followed by Milwaukee, Omaha, Pittsburgh, and Toledo. In these areas, home prices are significantly lower.

"Kolko suggests that if you want to live in an area with a high concentration of restaurants, choose the east or west coast, but be prepared to pay high housing costs."

San Francisco was the only area to make both lists.
