Restaurant blog Opinionated About Dining has released its annual list of the top 100+ restaurants in North America, following on from its list of the top 100+ restaurants in Europe

Topping the list for the second year in a row is Blaine Wetzels The Willlows Inn in Washington State, whilst jumping a whopping 14 places to number two is California’s SingleThread, which has just been named World’s 50 Best Restaurants One to Watch. San Francisco’s Saison is in third, while Chicago’s Alinea is fourth and The Restaurant at Meadowood, also in California, sits in fifth.

California’s current dominance of US dining continues, with six restaurants in the top 20 compared to New York’s four.

Opinionated About Dining has also simultaneously released a list of the top 100+ gourmet casual restaurants in North America, this year topped by Bouillion Bilk, a French bistro in Montreal. The rankings take into the consideration the opinions of thousands of registered reviewers, with greater weight given to those who visit more restaurants. 

See the top 20 for both lists below and click through for the full lists, both of which seemingly cover Mexico too.
