Two Arizona Restaurants Make OpenTable's List of Best Restaurants for Foodies This Year

Earlier this week OpenTable released an updated list of Top 100 Fit for Foodies Restaurants in America and this time only two Arizona restaurants made the cut. That's down from the five recognized by OpenTable last year.

The list, which is compiled by "analyzing more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the country," includes restaurants from 29 different states.

This year chef Cullen Campell's Crudo and chef Nobuo Fukuda's Nobuo at Teeter House were the only two restaurants from Arizona to make the list.

Crudo also received the award last year along with Bink's Midtown, Binkley's Restaurant, Posh, and ShinBay. As with last year's list, a large number of the restaurants are located in California. This year 14 of the 100 restaurants call the Golden State home, down slightly from last year's 19 winners.

The Top 100 Fit for Foodies Restaurants in America is part of the 2014 Diners Choice Awards. To build the list, OpenTable looked at 5 million restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between September 1, 2013, and August 31, 2014.

You can view the complete list of Top 100 Fit for Foodies Restaurants in America on the OpenTable website.
