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.
Donut Holes
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 packages (about 4½ teaspoons total) active dry yeast
  • 4½ cups gluten-free flour blend (I used Bob’s Redmill All Purpose)
  • 1 cup aquafaba (yus, bean juice)
  • 1¼ cups sugar
  • 8 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 4 cups vegetable oil for frying
  • 2½ cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup heavy corn syrup
  1. Start the day before you want to have these awesome donuts.
  2. Stir the water and yeast together in a medium bowl and set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk in a cup of the flour (ish) until it’s smooth.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel, then leave in a warm place for 45 minutes to rise or until it gets bubbly (which is hard to see through the towel, but check on it at like the 30 minute mark, then again every 5-ish minutes or so).
  5. Combine the coconut oil and sugar in your stand mixer until thoroughly combined.
  6. Place the aquafaba in the coconut oil and sugar mixture and mix well.
  7. Add in the vanilla and salt. Mix well, too. Heh.
  8. Now, you’re going to want to swap your whisk for the paddle on your stand mixer.
  9. Add the yeast mixture to the sugar mixture along with the rest of the flour, while your stand mixer is running. Allow to run until the flour is fully mixed in and the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  10. Place the dough in a large greased bowl covering with plastic wrap and a towel again.
  11. Let it rise in a warm place for approximately 1 hour (you can do 2, but there’s not going to be much difference, honestly).
  12. Remove the dough from the bowl and place in a zippered baggie, forcing all the air out before closing.
  13. Refrigerate overnight.
  14. Break off pieces of the dough, rolling them into ½-inch thick balls.
  15. Cover with a damp paper towel and allow the donut holes to rest for 30-45 mins.
  16. Heat the frying oil to a point where a tiny bit of dough placed in the center of the pan causes it to bubble and fry nicely..
  17. Carefully fry the doughnut holes on each side for 90 seconds.
  18. Place in a bowl over a paper towel to drain until all of the donut holes are cooked.
  19. Make the glaze by putting all the ingredients together in a small bowl and whisking together until the mixture is smooth.
  20. Dip each donut hole in the glaze and place on a wire rack to allow the glaze to harden.
  21. Be careful as you stuff them in your face, because you might stuff too many and then you have to do a trip to the hospital…it’s just a thing.
  22. Get the recipe that inspired it all at: DinnerThenDessert!
