Under the helm of editorial director, Colman Andrews, an eight-time James beard award winner and global authority on food and wine, The Daily Meal once again takes on the massive feat of narrowing down the United States’ most eaten-at, talked-about, highly-rated restaurants, to a slim list of just 101.  This year more than 100 panelists participated in the voting process, including Michael Bauer, S. Irene Virbila, Penny Pollack, and John T. Edge.
