Where can you get the best pizza in America? Esquire magazine has just put out a list and proud as we are of our city’s ability to punch above its weight when it comes to dining, still we are surprised to find Portland, Maine, in there with some of the nation’s pizza heavy hitters – New York; San Francisco; New Haven, Connecticut; and Providence, Rhode Island.

The magazine noted that Portland pizza “has been redefined by some truly gourmet options,” singling out for praise the pizza at Otto, Micucci Grocery and Slab.

Wondering who made The Worst list? Philadelphia and, surprisingly, Chicago, to name two.
