Another year, another year-end roundup of the best chefs and restaurants of the moment.
The latest comes from OpenTable, an online reservation platform, based on users' reviews of the restaurants.
California eateries nabbed 15 spots on the list, seven of them in the Bay Area. New York still boasted the most favorites, with 24 restaurants.
OpenTable says the collection of restaurants represent a diverse assortment of cuisines, from Hawaiian to Korean to Tex-Mex, but they certainly skew toward the pricy side. Perhaps that shouldn't come as a surprise, given people are more likely to make a reservation for a special occasion at a high-end restaurant than a more casual place.
