Are these the 100 best restaurants in the US? Kind of, maybe! They are the top 100 restaurants as rated by users of the reservations service OpenTable in 34 states and Washington DC. The "2011 Best Overall Winners" are in alphabetical order, not ranked, so there isn't a Best Restaurant, just 100 good restaurants. Nevertheless, standout names on the list include Blue Hill at Stone Barns in New York, Canlis in Seattle, Thomas Keller's French Laundry in the Napa Valley, Vetri in Philadelphia and more. Behold, the full list:
