The styles you couldn’t get enough of in 2023.

If half of your ideal dining-out experience is drinking good wine, we have some news that is relevant to your interests. OpenTable, the online reservations company, just released a list of the "100 Best Restaurants for Wine Lovers," featuring spots around the country that take wine as seriously as food, according to the site's users.

New York is the most recognized state on the list, with twelve NY restaurants making the top 100. Don't worry, Californians; your state followed closely behind with ten. If that still doesn't feel like enough California recognition, you can take it up with OpenTable; remember, we didn't make this list.

The list was generated from over twelve million verified OpenTable diner reviews for more than 28,000 American restaurants, collected between August 1, 2017, and July 31, 2018. ("All restaurants with a minimum 'overall' score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration," reads a press release. "Qualifying restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of reviews for which 'notable wine list' was selected as a special feature.")
