After another long winter, OpenTable today unveiled the 2015 Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America. This year, BO-beau’s Kitchen, the rooftop restaurant serving Cal-French classic in downtown Long Beach joins the list.

BO-beau kitchen + roof tap opened its doors in May 2014 at 144 Pine Avenue. Raising the bar on the local dining scene with its “bohemian industrial chic” aesthetic, the restored 1930’s-era art deco building boasts nearly 14,000 square feet including the downstairs BO-beau kitchen as well as the second-story roof tap—a play-on-words-title inspired by the open-air roof deck with 50 beer/wine/cocktails on tap. 

California boasts the greatest number of winning restaurants with 22. Other Southern California venues that earned top honors include Bestia and Barton G the Restaurant in Los Angeles and The Church Key and Koi in West Hollywood.

Global fare menus are fashionable, with standout restaurants serving Asian, Basque, Korean, Latin, Mediterranean, Mexican, and Polynesian dishes, among others. American cuisine, sushi, and steak are also popular.

“Whether they’re new or well established, there’s an intoxicating buzz in and around each of these restaurants,” said Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. “With inspired concepts, energetic atmospheres, and incredible food and drink, these hot spots are where diners will experience delight and excitement in the year ahead.”

The Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America are generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between March 1, 2014, and February 28, 2015. 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 “hot spot” category along with a minimum “overall” rating.

Based on this methodology, the following restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, comprise the Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America according to OpenTable diners. The complete list may also be viewed at
