OpenTable’s “100 Best Restaurants for Foodies” list just came out, honoring the restaurants that are serving “delicious dishes, from rustic to refined, meant to be shared with both forks and phones,” they said. The list was culled from “more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the country — all submitted by verified diners.” To no one’s surprise, the Golden State has a significant presence—17 out of 100, to be exact. We’ve listed the top California restaurants below so you know exactly where to make reservations.
