It seems list season is for my upon us. After yesterday’s Elite Traveller list of the 100 Best Restaurants in the World, the Daily Meal has followed up with their annual list of the 101 Best Restaurants in America for 2015.
They have chosen the Daniel restaurant in New York, owned and operated by chef Daniel Boulud, as the number one restaurant, followed by Le Bernadin in second and Joël Robuchon in Las Vegas in third.
They describe the Daniel as ‘a very grown up restaurant’ and say that it’s helping maintain the service and cousin of French haute cuisine. It’s an interesting move to see Daniel top the list after the restaurant fell down the Michelin ranking recently from three to two stars and also lost a much coveted star from the food critic Pete Wells.
Below is a look at the top ten restaurants on the list, you can see the full list on The Daily Meal.
