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.
The directions might seem a little long or more complicated then they really are but after you’ve made it once you might not even need a recipe a second time. Basically just go by the photos when keeping the vegetables separated by color if your going for the same rainbow look. You can spread the veggies out more in the beginning, then before adding the salmon and tomatoes just scoot things down to create space or if you don’t want so scoot them just place them as they are pictured from the beginning. Either way works fine since this is only 3 servings they shouldn’t be overcrowded. I hope all of you enjoy this simple healthy dinner as much as we did!
Ingredients
  • 1 medium yellow squash , sliced into 1/2-inch thick rounds
  • 2 1/2 cups bite size broccoli florets
  • 1/2 medium red onion , diced into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil , divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard mustard
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced, divided
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 (5 – 6 oz) skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (I actually used 1 1/2 cups because I love tomatoes)
  • 4 lemon wedges , for serving

 

Instructions

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed 18 by 13-inch baking sheet with parchment. Place squash on baking sheet on upper third portion of baking sheet then place broccoli in the middle portion and red onion on bottom portion*. Drizzle veggies with 4 tsp olive oil, season with salt and pepper and toss while keeping veggies separated in each section. Roast in preheated oven 8 minutes. Meanwhile in small bowl stir together mustard, honey, 1 tsp of the olive oil, 1 minced clove garlic and lemon juice, set aside.
  2. Remove baking sheet from oven. Move veggies down a little ways to fit tomato layer and salmon (as pictured in photos above). Place salmon on baking sheet next to squash layer (bottom side facing up), brush of salmon fillets with half of the mustard mixture and season with a fair amount of salt and pepper, then flip each portion and brush tops with remaining mustard mixture and season with salt and pepper. Place tomatoes on baking sheet in the top portion of the baking sheet, drizzle with last 1 tsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle remaining 2 cloves garlic evenly over the vegetables and tomatoes. Return to oven and roast until salmon has cooked through and vegetables have softened, about 12 – 15 minutes longer. Serve immediately with lemon wedges for spritzing over salmon and vegetables.
  3. *I actually added the red onion later on when adding the tomatoes and salmon because I wanted them to be brightly colorful, but next time I’m adding them at the beginning so they soften more – as listed above.
