Only One San Diego Restaurant Makes OpenTable's 100 Best Restaurants In America List For 2018

December 19, 2018

Online restaurant-reservation service company OpenTable surveyed more than 12 million user reviews to determine its 100 Best Restaurants in America for 2018 list and only one San Diego restaurant made the cut.

OpenTable's list is a comprehensive look at the year's most beloved dining spots culled from more than 12 million verified diner reviews of over 28,000 restaurants in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.. From foodie-favorites with world-renowned chefs to breakthrough hidden gems, the list showcases the platform's comprehensive network of dining options for every occasion across the country. New York holds the most honorees with 24 winning restaurants followed by California with 15, Illinois with nine and Texas with eight. Of the 100 restaurants listed, San Diego only had one restaurant named.

Del Mar's MARKET Restaurant + Bar was the sole San Diego restaurant named on the 2018 list. Helmed by Chef Carl Schroeder's, the product-driven eatery changes the menu daily. This is the second year in a row that Market made the cut.

"The 100 Best Restaurants in America list gives voice to OpenTable's diner community by honoring the restaurants they love to visit and that consistently provide dining experiences that delight time and again," said Caroline Potter, Chief Dining Officer at OpenTable. "The diversity of this year's list truly showcases how OpenTable helps diners find the right restaurant for every appetite and every occasion."

Market Restaurant + Bar is located at 3702 Via De La Valle in San Diego's Del Mar community. For more information and reservations, visit
