“We would like to congratulate this list of restaurants who stand out among all the high-end restaurants in the US,” said Kara Nortman, SVP of Consumer Businesses, CityGrid Media. “Based on restaurants that received the most favorable reviews from Urbanspoon’s critic, blogger and diner communities, the list truly highlights a myriad of establishments from the expected like the Bay Area’s French Laundry, to the unexpected places like Restaurant Iris in Memphis.”
The Urbanspoon Top High-End Restaurant List covers 36 states and 64 metropolitan areas including historically Food-loving cities like New York, San Francisco, and Chicago and highlights some smaller locations like Destin, Florida.

Restaurants on the Urbanspoon 2012 Top High-End Dining List were selected based on the number of aggregate blog posts on Urbanspoon; diner ‘up votes’ and ‘down votes;’ consumer reviews; critic reviews; and total page views.
