Alinea, Chicago, IllinoisWhat are the 50 Most Iconic American Eateries?

Here’s a list from Rave Reviews. (Your Road Trips Foodie thinks their methodology is a bit funky, but whatever.)

Their list puts Alinea in Chicago in first, Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, New York, in second, and Eleven Madison Park in New York City in third.

The selection process for this list went like this: it was based on data from the most recent rankings on Eater, Business Insider, The Daily Meal, Trip Advisor, and Open Table, along with “special attention” paid to the most recent James Beard Awardees. Once the list was compiled, the ranking used the aforementioned sources plus “additional information” available on Wikipedia and local digital food journalism along the following “criteria”: nostalgia rating, taste rating, cult rating, and hospitality rating.
