The Rest is a “secret” restaurant in the basement of Bodega, a street-level tavern. With a reservation, or if allowed admission from the bartender upstairs, customers can experience contemporary American cuisine.

A statement from OpenTable said the awards reflect the combined opinions of more than five million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 20,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

“The complete list includes honorees in 27 states,” the statement said. “California has 25 winning restaurants, followed by New York with 15, and Florida and Illinois with seven each. Texas has five while Colorado and Georgia have four winners apiece.

Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Nevada each have three winners. Arizona, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, and Utah count two winners per state.

“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.”
