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.

Instructions
Preparing the Crepes
  1. First, preheat a flat-iron griddle or large saute pan over medium heat. While it heats, make the batter.
  2. Next, in a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and milk a little at a time. Whisk the ingredients together until the batter is thin and smooth. If needed, add a little more flour or milk to reach an extremely thin pancake batter.
  3. Last, pour about a 1/4 cup of the mixture on to the hot griddle. If possible gently lift the pan and roll it around, so the crepe spreads out. Let it cook for one to two minutes on the first side, then flip it and let it cook an additional minute. Remove the crepe from the heat and fold it into a triangle.
Nutella Topping
  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the Nutella. Microwave it on high-heat for 20-second intervals until it’s smooth and creamy. Stir the sauce in between intervals. Drizzle it over the finished crepes.
Banana Strawberry Compote
  1. First, dice your bananas and strawberries into bite-sized chunks.
  2. Next, in small mixing bowl, toss the fruit with the lemon juice and sugar,
  3. Last, let the compote set for a minute or two, then spoon it over the finished cakes.
  4. Brown Butter and Sugar Topping
  5. First, in a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, melt the butter.
  6. Then, add the sugar and cinnamon and increase the heat to medium.
  7. Last, stir the mixture as it cooks for three to five minutes. The butter should brown, and the sugar should crystalize creating a crunchy garnish. Sprinkle the topping over the finished crepes.
