The 10 Best Restaurants In The U.S., According To TripAdvisor

America the beautiful. 🍴

It's tricky to name the best fine-dining restaurants in the U.S.: There's food, and there's price, and then there's ambiance to consider. 

And nobody knows how to judge all three like a traveler does. TripAdvisor has released a nomad-vetted list of the top fine-dining restaurants in the United States, after analyzing thousands of reviews from savvy travelers around the world. The restaurants range from iconic mainstays, like NYC's Le Bernardin, to more off-the-beaten-spoon spots, like a swanky eatery near Disney World in Florida.

Prepare to eat GREAT food, no matter where you roam. The best fine dining in the U.S. is found at...
