Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
  • 1 pound (2 large) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup white flour
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, (separated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon EACH: paprika, Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic, (separated)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Panko
  • Salt and freshly cracked pepper
  • 10 ounces green beans, (trimmed)
Lemon Butter Sauce
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2-3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest ((1 large lemon))
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley, (minced)




  1. Start with the Lemon Butter Sauce: In the large nonstick skillet, add the butter and warm it on medium-high heat. When it is melted add in the garlic and stir around until fragrant. Add in the fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and fresh minced parsley. Simmer on medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes or until slightly reduced. Add freshly cracked pepper if desired. Transfer to a dish and set aside.
  2. Set out 3 shallow bowls or plates (paper plates/bowls for fast clean-up!). In the first, add the flour. In the second, add in 4 tablespoons melted butter. In the last, combine the paprika, Italian seasoning, dried parsley, 1 and 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, and Panko. Take the 2 large chicken breasts and remove any fat. Butterfly the breasts and then cut exactly in half (so you have 4 thin breasts). Then pound the halves to even thickness. Generously salt and pepper both sides of each chicken breast.
  3. Dredge the chicken in the flour, then the melted butter, and then the Parmesan mixture. If you have leftover butter and Parmesan mixture, dip the chicken in both again (you shouldn’t have any leftover of either and double breading is delicious!).
  4. In the same skillet, over medium-high heat add 2 tablespoons butter. Add the breaded chicken breasts and cook for 3-5 minutes, flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until chicken registers 165 degrees F on a meat thermometer. If its browning too fast and not cooking in the inside, the heat is too high.
  5. Remove the cooked chicken to a plate (paper!) and tent with foil. Meanwhile, while the chicken is cooking, prepare the green beans by cleaning and trimming them. Thinly slice a lemon.
  6. Add the prepared green beans and 1 more tablespoon butter to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper and cook over medium heat until crisp tender (about 5-8 minutes). Add the lemon slices and remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic in for the last 1-2 minutes.
  7. Add the chicken back into the skillet and serve immediately with the prepared lemon butter sauce (add the sauce to each bite (dip the chicken) as you are enjoying — don’t pour the sauce over the chicken or it will become soggy). If desired garnish the chicken with 1 more tablespoon parsley. The lemons are just to infuse with more lemon flavor and not necessarily to be eaten.
