On Tuesday, OpenTable released its compilation of Top 100 Restaurants in America for 2019, an extensive list of diverse cuisines and globally-inspired menus based on scores from its diners. While Italian food did top the restaurant list, French, Japanese and Latin American-inspired eateries also trended for this year.

"Whether a restaurant has received national accolades or is built on local fanfare, our Top 100 reflects diners’ favorite culinary experiences across the country," said Andrea Johnston, COO at OpenTable in a press release. "What ultimately ties these restaurants together is their excellent hospitality paired with incredible dishes, which is why diners are applauding them with rave reviews."

California had the most spots on this year's list, followed by Florida, New York and Pennsylvania all tied for second place. If you're looking to put your palate to the test this coming year, let these delectable joints lead the way for your tastebuds.
