New York, NY (PRWEB) December 22, 2012
BLB released their list of top restaurants today which was prompted by a top-100 list that was put out by OpenTable last week. The list was compiled from more than five million restaurant reviews of more than 15,000 establishments across all 50 states and touts restaurants that made guests feel as if they “had a truly singular dining experience.”
OpenTable revealed its list of top-100 “best overall” restaurants, a list that focused heavily on California but still saw 18 New York restaurants crack the list. The list featured many small neighborhood eateries with loyal followings. In New York, venues such as Annisa, Bouley, Per Se and Le Bernardin made the list, which was completed alphabetically rather than by ranking.
In response, BLB released its list of top New York eateries, which also features highly-rated restaurants recently topping reviewer's lists. Taking into consideration the reviews featured on OpenTable as well as by local food critics, BLB's list also includes eateries such as Catch and Brooklyn Buschenschank.
Restaurants on OpenTable's list were graded by their average rating by OpenTable reviewers and the number of reviewers for that particular restaurant along with the restaurant's rating as compared to other eateries in the same area. Mark Birnbaum, co-owner of Catch, took the time to retweet a highlight of Metro's article naming Catch as the best non-Japanese restaurant for sushi earlier this week.
The world of restaurants is a constantly evolving one, especially in New York where upwards of one hundred new eateries can appear in any given year. This year BLB's where to eat in New York list feature those rated as best overall by reviewers as well as best for (at least) one particular reason by local food critics.
