For the first time Food & Wine invites the public to vote in the America’s Favorite Food Cities Survey.

According to a news release, Louisville was chosen by Food &Wine’s editors as one of 40 contenders vying for the honor. Now through April 30 the public can vote on which city has the best-looking chefs, the most adventurous eaters, and more.

Be forewarned, this is not a popularity contest like the Southern Living vote-a-thon of two years ago. This is a detailed survey asking respondents to rank those dining cities on more than 50 characteristics including which city has the best chefs or most vibrant ethnic food scene, to which city has the best or worst service. The results will be revealed in the September 2014 print issue of Food & Wine.
