5. Chicago, Illinois

Bon Appétit named Chicago the "best restaurant city in America" this year — and for good reason. The Midwest city's innovative dining scene is characterized by its beloved deep dish pizza, one of the best burgers in the country, and some of the best molecular gastronomy experiences the US has to offer.

We also named Chicago one of the best places to travel to in 2018.
