Two restaurants in Palm Beach County have made the list of the “Top 100 Restaurants in America” List for 2019. Palm Beach County was the only county in Florida to have two restaurants make the list.
OpenTable, the online reservation making, and review website conducted a survey which included 27 states. The newly released list includes Palm Beach Island’s Buccan and Krave located in Tequesta. The two local favorites are among 7 restaurants in Florida that have made the list.
Buccan is a local favorite bistro with head Chef Clay Conley that has been added to the list once again. Buccan is a high-end bistro featuring American cuisine mixed with some of the freshest ingredients from the very best sources. Buccan features small plates with big flavors and every city and country that Chef Conley has visited or lived in influences his style, technique and palate.
Krave is a small but authentic French restaurant that is inspired by the owners and chef David and Delphine Hoquet native France. Chef David choices some of the best ingredients and personally prepares everything on the menu. The menu features classic French items and offers special French food preparations not commonly found in America.
OpenTable conducts a survey every year based on certain criteria that they use to help create the list of “Top 100”. The survey includes comments and reviews posted from October 1st, 2018 to September 30th, 2019. The reservation site uses a unique number of data points, overall diner ratings, number of reviews, overall regional standing and other markers to generate their list. What ultimately brings the restaurants together is their excellent hospitality and incredible dishes are what leads to excellent reviews.
Five other restaurants in the State of Florida have made the list. These restaurants include CRUST in Miami, Rainbow Palace in Fort Lauderdale, Bites at The Ritz Carlton in Naples, Bull and Bear Steakhouse in Orlando and Collage Restaurant in St. Augustine.
