(Just a note: We believe that everyone has unique tastes and preferences; so we refuse to assume that our opinion of what we like the most is what everyone else would like as well. However, we want to deliver a solid list of restaurants that you are most likely to love. To do this, we analyzed restaurant reviews, forums and other chats and then cross-referenced that information with the personal experiences of our friends, family and social network. We combined all of that information into a list of the most popular, most raved-about restaurant experiences. This is the list that we are excited to share with you! Enjoy!)
