Japanese-influenced restaurants have earned the number two and three spots with California’s Single Thread Farm maintaining its position for the second year running. Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Fare jumped five places into the number three spot.

Two important additions to this year’s Top 10 include Smyth, which has ended Alinea’s more than decade run as the top performing restaurant in the Chicago market, and José Andrés and Aitor Zabala’s West Hollywood restaurant, Somni, which by landing in the sixth slot has been named the Best New Restaurant in North America for 2019. Andrés’ Minibar grabbed the number eight slot, giving the philanthropic chef two spots in the Top 10.

Of this year’s list, OAD founder Steve Plotnicki points to the eight new restaurants which are debuting in the Top 50, commenting: “Fine dining in the U.S. appears to be alive,” and Plotnicki also highlights the strong showing by restaurants in the Los Angeles area, saying: “I hope this dispels the notion that fine dining can’t succeed in LA.”
