OpenTable has revealed its 2016 list of the top U.S. restaurants based on reviews from the restaurant-reservations site’s users.
Many of the concepts selected for the 100 Hottest Restaurants in America list offer “vibrant bar and lounge scenes with an after-hours feel,” OpenTable said, noting that eateries with global cuisine also had a strong showing.
The chosen concepts, which are ranked in no particular order, were culled from 5 million-plus reviews covering more than 20,000 restaurants, according to OpenTable.
