California Eateries Dominate 100 'Hottest Restaurants in America' List

Whether you're craving an authentic Mexican meal, or simply looking for some amazing American fare, OpenTable's latest list of the "100 Hottest Restaurants in America" will leaving you salivating.

On Wednesday, the online restaurant reservation site released its latest compilation of eateries that provide "thrilling" meals.

According to OpenTable, the list was made using the opinions stated in some 5 million restaurant reviews submitted between March 1, 2015, and Feb. 29 by verified diners at more than 20,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

"The winning restaurants are highly regarded for their lively ambiance, and many feature vibrant bar and lounge scenes with an after-hours feel," OpenTable says. "New restaurants made a splash with more than a fifth opening their doors in 2015 alone. While American cuisine was quite popular, Asian, global, Italian, Mexican, and sushi eateries also made strong showings."

Honorees come from 27 states total, with California claiming the most "hot" spots at 27. New York came in second, with 15, followed by Florida and Illinois which each had seven.

All restaurants with a minimum "overall" score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration, according to OpenTable. Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from each eatery's average rating in the "hot spot" category.

Without further ado, here is the full list, according to OpenTable. You can also sort by state on their website here. (Results are listed alphabetically below, and the * indicates any eateries that opened in 2015.)
