March's Travel + Leisure mag ranks what its readers call the 20 best cities for pizza in America, and Philly was fourth, behind Chicago (whose deep-dish pizza is hard to replicate elsewhere), Providence (grilled pizza), and New York.

(The editors acknowledge that large metro areas are surveyed, effectively shutting out a small-town pizza hotbed like New Haven, Conn.)

Philly also ranked in the top five of T+L's America's Favorite Cities poll for its museums and cultural attractions.

The T+L copy cited Pizza Brain, the pizza museum in Fishtown/Kensington, and used the pizza at Nomad near South Street to illustrate the Philly section in print.
