Omahans like to say we have the highest number of restaurants per capita of any city, but some new data might prove it wrong: Omaha isn't one of the top food cities.
Instead, it's one of the top three bar cities.
Trulia, a real estate trend-watcher, created maps that divide the U.S. into restaurant cities and bar cities, and Omaha pops up as the city with the third-highest bar density: 8.3 bars per 10,000 households.
The top food cities: San Francisco, with 39.3 restaurants per 10,000 households, New York City and the surrounding area and Seattle.
The city with the highest density of bars is New Orleans, with 8.6 bars per 10,000 households, followed by Milwaukee and Omaha.
Look below to see the full lists and a U.S. map of bar density.
