The Diners’ Choice Awards for the Top 100 Best Restaurants for Brunch in America are generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between April 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014. All restaurants with a minimum number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from each restaurant’s average rating in the “brunch” category along with a minimum “overall” rating.
Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the Top 100 Brunch Restaurants in America according to OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at http://www.opentable.com/m/best-brunch-restaurants-in-america/.
