This list of the best restaurants in America, published by BusinessInsider, was created after careful review and examination of five noteworthy lists: The Daily Meal’s 101 Best Restaurants in America 2015, OpenTable’s 2015 Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America, The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, James Beard Foundation’s 2015 Restaurant and Chef Award Semifinalists, and Trip Advisor’s Travelers’ Favorite Fine Dining Restaurants. Each restaurant’s ranking was determined depending on how high it appeared on each list and the number of lists it appeared on. It’s worth mentioning that two very important sources of critical reviews were not considered: The Michelin 2015 Guide Selections (which will not be released until Fall 2015), and Zagat’s List of Best Restaurants by Major City.
Nonetheless, this is quite an interesting list to inspire restaurant and food entrepreneurs. Each of these popular hot spots should be admired for its savory creations, innovative concepts, atmosphere, location, service and successful leadership team. Feeling inspired?
