Another year, another year-end roundup of the best chefs and restaurants of the moment.
The latest comes from OpenTable, an online reservation platform, based on users' reviews of the restaurants.
California eateries nabbed 15 spots on the list, seven of them in the Bay Area. New York still boasted the most favorites, with 24 restaurants.
OpenTable says the collection of restaurants represent a diverse assortment of cuisines, from Hawaiian to Korean to Tex-Mex, but they certainly skew toward the pricy side. Perhaps that shouldn't come as a surprise, given people are more likely to make a reservation for a special occasion at a high-end restaurant than a more casual place.
ALSO: Three of TripAdvisor's best restaurants are in SF. One is a burger chain.
The list also presumably excludes restaurants that use other online reservation platforms, like Resy, or don't take reservations at all.
See which Bay Area restaurants made it onto OpenTable's list of best restaurants in 2018 in the slideshow above.
You can see the full list of restaurants nationwide at OpenTable's website.
