Every year Open Table puts out its “Top 100 Restaurants in the US” list. This year’s list has SEVEN restaurants from Florida. Sadly, I’ve never been to any of them.

Two of the seven, however, are from Tampa. So 2 of the top 100 restaurants in the country are from Tampa. They are Bern’s Steakhouse and Lilac.

If you ask me, it’s a pretty big deal to be added to the top 100 of anything in the United States, so making the top 100 restaurants list is pretty amazing. I have heard incredible things about Bern’s, but I had never heard of Lilac before. Maybe I need to find some time to get out there and eat at them.

What about you? Have you ever been to either of them? What about the other restaurants on the list?
