Yelp has named its top 100 places to eat in the United States and three Chicago restaurants are among the best.
Alinea (19), Girl and the Goat (38), and Bavette’s Bar and Boeuf (98) made Yelp’s 2016 list respectively. Last year, only one Chicago restaurant earned a spot among the review site’s rankings. The Mediterranean eatery Pi-Hi Cafe in the city’s Roscoe Village neighborhood landed at number 100, according to Yelp’s 2015 report.
To determine which restaurants made the cut, researchers looked at the most popular and well-reviewed eateries on Yelp, according to the study. Analysts also considered ratings and the number of reviews while factoring for quality and statistical fluctuations.
Foodies who want to wish to expand their restaurant bucket lists should consider heading west. Porto’s Bakery and Cafe in Burbank, California specializes in Cuban cuisine and was ranked the best place to eat in America, according to Yelp.
