The Daily Meal, has just released its 4th annual ranking of the 101 Best Restaurants in America. New York dominates this year’s ranking with 28 restaurants on the list (6 in the top 10 alone). California comes in with 24 restaurants, spread quite evenly between LA (10), San Francisco (9) and other regions, including Yountville in Napa County, Berkeley, St. Helena, and Los Gatos.
About the ranking Under the helm of editorial director, Colman Andrews, an eight-time James beard award winner and global authority on food and wine, The Daily Meal once again takes on the massive feat of narrowing down the United States’ most eaten-at, talked-about, highly-rated restaurants, to a slim list of just 101. This year more than 100 panelists participated in the voting process, including Michael Bauer, S. Irene Virbila, Penny Pollack, and John T. Edge.
What’s made the list so influential, sweeping both culinary and consumer media in past years, is that it gives food lovers, travelers, and everyday Americans, an exemplary guide to America’s dining scene. How often does one question where they should dine out when traveling to a new city? How little do we know about our own cities’ dining royalty? And what is categorically THE best restaurant in country? This ranking can be treated as the culinary bucket list of America. These are the places to eat and be seen, to indulge and pay homage…if at least for 2014.
