There are a lot of lists out there, but I always check Tripadvisor
Much like the People’s choice award, I like to see who, where, and what the people choose. I almost always check Tripadvisor before booking a hotel and read several of their reviews to get a feel for what real life people are choosing. Not some snobby blogger 😉 or hoity toity critic which is why I found this list to be pretty interesting. That and my Dad has become a mega tripadvisor contributor with restaurants and I’ve since started referring to the site for dining reviews as well. He gave me a heads up to this list and some surprises. The #1, Daniel, in NYC has long been a fine dining institution, but creatives like Alinea ( featured on Netflix’s Chef’s Table) out of Chicago came in at #2: I’ve wanted to experience Alinea since seeing it on the show. The big shocker to me…The Carolinas picking up 3 of the top ten, and 2 in Charleston alone. Scroll down to the see the list and click the link to see writeups.
Miles was lucky enough to eat at the #2 Restaurant a couple years back: Victoria and Albert. HIGHLY recommend the experience.
