Rave Reviews Releases 2017 Ranking of the 50 Most Iconic American Restaurants

EUGENE, Ore., Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rave Reviews, the innovative ranking site that creates entertaining write-ups using advanced data-driven analysis, has published its ranking of the "50 Most Iconic American Restaurants."

American restaurants are a collective mirror, reflecting the culture and diverse heritage of the United States. What these restaurants also show is the genius of their chefs. With awards and accolades, each restaurant comes alive through the vision of the culinary minds behind these innovative and delicious meals. Also notable is the book list that emerges from these establishments in the form of beautiful and informative signature cookbooks.

"From classic French fine dining in New York City to a conceptual avant-garde experience in Chicago to traditional Texas barbecue, American restaurants display their greatness from coast to coast in a variety of ways," Taylor Barnes, the editor of Rave Reviews, said. "The inspirations are local and global, all at once."

Rave Reviews' selection process for this list of the 50 Great American Restaurants was based on data from the most recent rankings on Eater, Business Insider, The Daily Meal, Trip Advisor, and Open Table, along with special attention paid to the most recent James Beard Awardees. Once the list was compiled, the ranking used the aforementioned sources plus additional information available on Wikipedia and local digital food journalism along the following criteria: nostalgia rating, taste rating, cult rating, and hospitality rating.
