USA Today Lists Zagat's Top 30 Dining Spots
Posted by Charlie Harris

The USA Today printed a list of " America's top restaurants" from Zagat. The common denominator is a food rating of 29 out of a possible 30. And while we'd trust most restaurants bearing a rating that high, it's a bit of a headscratcher why Sacramento would have three times as many restaurants (6) with a 29 rating as San Francisco (2) -- guess there's not much of a dining scene there. Atlanta and Boston only have one a piece. Methodology of the quotation-mark-happy red book aside, here are the the restaurants that made the cut. 

Atlanta: Bacchanalia

Boston: O Ya

Connecticut (Branford): Le Petit Cafe

Chicago: Les Nomades, Alinea, Schwa

Cleveland (Vermilion, Ohio): Chez Francois

Dallas/Fort Worth: Bonnell's

Kansas City (Smithville, Mo.): Justus Drugstore

Los Angeles: Matsuhisa

Miami: Naoe

Milwaukee: Roots, Sanford, Eddie Martini's (Wauwatosa, Wis.)

New Jersey (Red Bank, N.J.): Nicholas

New York City: Le Bernardin, Daniel, Sushi Nanase (White Plains, N.Y.), North Fork Table (Southold, N.Y.)

Sacramento area: Mulvaney's Building & Loan, The Kitchen, Ambience (Carmichael, Calif.), Sunflower Drive In (Fair Oaks, Calif.), Taste (Plymouth, Calif.)

San Diego: Market

San Francisco: Gary Danko, French Laundry (Yountville, Calif.)

Washington, D.C.: Komi, Marcel's, Inn at Little Washington (Washington, Va.)
