Portland has been chosen by the editors of Food & Wine magazine as one of 40 contenders in its "America's Favorite Food Cities" survey.
And, for the first time, the public can vote for their favorites - so, my fellow Portlanders, go to www.foodandwine.com/articles/americas-favorite-food-cities and start clicking.
The survey asks you to choose which city has the best chefs, the best sushi, the best beer scene, the most adventurous diners, the most pompous foodies, and so on. Voting takes place through April 30, and the results will be revealed in the September issue of the magazine.
Food & Wine editors will be talking about the contest on Twitter and Instagram. Join in using the hashtag #FWPortlandME
