Providence is nationally renowned for its superior Italian cuisine, with Federal Hill a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. As it turns out, the burgers aren't so bad either.
Using data from its annual "America's Favorite Cities" reader survey issue, Travel and Leisure Magazine found that voters called Providence America's best burger city. Providence also finished No. 2 for overall dining in the survey.
Writes Katrina Brown Hunt: "Try the New England Grass-Fed Burger at Local 121, or swing by Harry's Bar and Burger for 100-percent-Hereford sliders on potato rolls and 50 beer options - proof of the city's high rankings for microbrews."
The only other New England city to make the top 22 was Portland, Maine, which came in at No. 19. (Hunt recommends The Blue Spoon's Bistro Burger).
