Island Creek Oyster Bar ranks high in TripAdvisor survey of US restaurants
The awards are based on the millions of traveler reviews and opinions on TripAdvisor, and winners range from casual chains to fine dining restaurants, TripAdvisor said. All told, 576 restaurants from around the world were honored.
The Island Creek Oyster Bar was ranked eighth on a top 10 list of US restaurants, the only local bistro to crack the US top 10 list, TripAdvisor noted.
Some restaurants made both the top US list and the top overall favorite’s list, which includes restaurants from around the world. One example: “Girl & The Goat,” a Chicago establishment where the discerning gastronome can chow down on couscous casoncelli and chickpea fritters.
In a statement, TripAdvisor chief marketing officer Barbara Messing said, “We found that travelers’ favorite restaurants range from well-known, casual chains to upscale fine dining options – the common thread for these award-winners being a consistently remarkable dining experience with outstanding service and quality.”Chris Reidy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
