“For 2015, I changed the name of the list to Top 100+” says OAD’s founder, renowned diner Steve Plotnicki. “By extending the list to 200 entries, it gave the OAD community of reviewers a wider breadth of expression in terms of listing the types of places where they like to eat while allowing for a greater number of talented chefs to be applauded for their work.”

Some of the restaurant entering the Top 100 for the first time include: Ludo Lefebvre’s Los Angeles based Trois Mec; Chicago’s 42 Grams, run by husband-wife duo Jake Bickelhaupt and Alexa Welsh; Carlos Salgado’s progressive Mexican restaurant, Taco Maria, set in Costa Mesa, California; Greenpoint, New York’s Luksus helmed by ex-Noma pastry chef, Daniel Burns; and Chapel Hill, North Carolina’s, One Restaurant, run by chef Kim Floresca and her husband, pastry chef Daniel Ryan.

New York retains it's spot as the most densely desirable dining locale on the list with a total of 50 restaurants in the Top 200, followed by Los Angeles with 27 entries, San Francisco with 25 entries, Chicago with 18 restaurants listed, Boston/Portland, ME/Providence with 11, the Washington D.C. region with 9 entries and Las Vegas with 7.
