If 2023 was the year of dining out for you, you’re not alone.

Reservation sites Resy and Open table have released their top restaurants of the year. For Open Table, the list of 100 restaurants was created from over 12 million verified diner reviews and metrics, including ratings, how many reservations are made in advance and the number of five-star reviews.

Resy, meanwhile, concludes that 2023 was the year that restaurants became less about a stop in between destinations: "they became the destinations themselves."

"It felt like we could have it all this year — that the only dining rule was to make your meal your main event," Resy said in a blog.

Resy’s top 19 list didn’t specify where the rankings came from. Instead, they called these top eateries "standouts" that "help show just how much energy and excitement is coming from the country’s kitchens right now."
