Houston is earning high praise for its prosperity, love and sustainability in a prestigious new report from Canada-based real estate and tourism marketing advisors Resonance Consultancy.

The annual “America’s Best Cities” report ranks the relative qualities of place, cultural diversity and economic prosperity for America’s top cities with metropolitan populations of 500,000 or more. These top 100 cities are “the engines of their regional and national economies and, more importantly, the global economy,” according to the report.

Houston ranked No. 10 on the list, with New York City (No. 1), Chicago (No. 2) and Los Angeles (No. 3) claiming the coveted top three spots.

Resonance described the city’s “underrated” culinary scene as a tripartite fusion of Southern Soul, barbecue and Mexican influences “then tempered with global cuisine.”

For locals and die-hards looking for restaurant recommendations, the report yields just one: Newly opened in late August in Midtown, whose talented executive chef Sergio Hidalgo and sommelier/general manager Danny Davis blend “southern Mexican cuisine with the magic of West Africa”.

Elsewhere in Texas, Austin (No. 15) and Dallas (No. 16) ranked among the top 20 U.S. cities, with San Antonio at 32nd nationally. Landing outside the top 50 in the report were El Paso (No. 83) and McAllen (No. 88).
