Top 20 US restaurants

I sometimes find myself dwelling on hotels and accommodation too much on A Luxury Travel Blog, and don’t pay enough attention to others such as bars, restaurants and the like.   To make up for that, I’m listing the first 20 of Zagat’s current top 100 restaurants (even if they are mostly situated in hotels or inns) in the USA, complete with links:

  1. French Room at The Adolphus Hotel – Dallas, Texas
  2. Fountain Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  3. Dining Room at Little Palm Island Resort – Little Torch Key, Florida
  4. Inn at Little Washington – Washington, Virginia
  5. Maestro at Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner – McLean, Virginia
  6. Hampton’s at Harbor Court Hotel – Baltimore, Maryland
  7. Aujourd’hui at Four Seasons Hotel – Boston, Massachusetts
  8. La Mer at Halekulani Hotel – Honolulu, Hawaii
  9. Ritz-Carlton Buckhead Dining Room at Ritz-Carlton Buckhead – Atlanta, Georgia
  10. Picasso at Bellagio Hotel – Las Vegas, Nevada
  11. Sierra Mar at Post Ranch Inn – Big Sur, California
  12. Thomas Henkelmann at Homestead Inn – Greenwich, Connecticut
  13. L’Etoile at Charlotte Inn – Edgartown, Massachusetts
  14. Mary Elaine’s at The Phoenician – Scottsdale, Arizona
  15. New Orleans Grill at Windsor Court Hotel – New Orleans, Louisiana
  16. Rugby Grille at Townsend Hotel – Birmingham, Michigan
  17. Marquesa at Fairmont Scottsdale Princess – Scottsdale, Arizona
  18. Hotel St. Germain at Hotel St. Germain – Dallas, Texas
  19. Swann Lounge at Four Seasons Hotel – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  20. The Belvedere at The Peninsula Beverly Hills – Beverly Hills, California

Rather impressively, two of the restaurants are located in the same hotel.   I’ll leave you to work that out and spot them!

    Dinner at the Inn at Little Washington was one of the most amazing dining experiences we have ever had.

    Just a note L’Etoile is no longer at the Charlotte Inn in Martha’s Vineyard. Still in town and still wonderful, but not at the Inn. Catch on the Terrace is the new restaurant at the Inn.

    Makes me want to visit the Four Seasons in Philadelphia just to try out the restaurants!

  3. Picasso in Vegas is excellent. Great food and elegant service in a great hotel.
