Three restaurants in San Diego made OpenTable‘s list of the top 100 “neighborhood gem” restaurants in America.
The list is based on the combined opinions of more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by OpenTable diners for more than 19,000 restaurants across the United States.
The three San Diego restaurants are:
- Blue Ribbon Rustic Kitchen in Hillcrest
- BO-beau kitchen + garden in La Mesa
- Croce’s Park West in Hillcrest
California had the most eateries on the list, with a total of 24. Although American fare was the most popular cuisine among the 100 neighborhood restaurants, Italian was a close second. French fare was popular as well, as were seafood and southern menus.
“The winning restaurants on this list are in many ways the heart and soul of their neighborhoods, offering much more than delicious meals,” said Caroline Potter, OpenTable’s chief dining officer. “They provide a place that inspires a real sense of community and pride, making local area foodies feel right at home, night after night.”
The Diners’ Choice Awards for the Top 100 Best Neighborhood Gem Restaurants in America were generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews collected from OpenTable diners between June 1, 2013, and May 31, 2014. Restaurants were scored and sorted according to the percentage of reviews for which “neighborhood gem” was selected as a special feature.
OpenTable’s complete list is available online.
