No sooner had the proclamation left our lips when a lull set in. Recessions will do that.

Miami had clearly moved up. It's difficult to say exactly which municipalities we passed on the way (Atlanta? Houston? Denver?), but by the end of 2010, there we were -- perched toward the top of the nation's second-tier food cities.
