America's Snobbiest Cities
No. 16 Los Angeles
The city that gave the world both Hollywood and Rodeo Drive managed to land outside the snooty top 10—perhaps because readers found its cultural offerings to be too mainstream. For some A-list people-watching, book a table at one of the city’s best hotel restaurants, such as Culina, at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, or the revamped Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air. Just remember: on the city’s congested freeways, right-of-way may be determined by your most recent box-office earnings.
