“These standout restaurants are delicious destinations for the most passionate eaters — those for whom dining out is practically sport,” says Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer in a statement.  “Using ingredients both humble and exotic and drawing culinary inspiration from around the globe, this year’s honorees consistently offer thrilling experiences sure to please even the most discerning diners.”

The list was generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners between August 1, 2015, and July 31, 2016. All restaurants with a minimum “overall” score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which “fit for foodies” was selected as a special feature, then the restaurants were listed alphabetically.
