SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As long summer days are inspiring late summer nights, OpenTable, Inc. (NASDAQ: OPEN; www.opentable.com), a leading provider of free, real-time online restaurant reservations for diners and reservation and guest management solutions for restaurants, is pleased to assist hungry night owls by announcing the Diners' Choice Awards for the top 50 restaurants for late night dining. The list of winners is derived from more than 10 million reviews submitted by OpenTable diners for more than 12,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
New York City solidified its reputation as the city that never sleeps with four spots on the list, but it shares top honors with Atlanta and Orlando, which both tied with the Big Apple. Minneapolis, Los Angeles and San Francisco are represented on the list by three restaurants each, followed by two winners in Chicago, Nashville and St. Louis. Other honorees are located in Boston, Cleveland, Las Vegas, Oakland, Philadelphia and Raleigh, among others.
"Late night dining done right is really about creating an after-hours oasis of food, fun, and, oftentimes, music," says Caroline Potter, OpenTable's Chief Dining Officer. "This year's award-winning restaurants are magnets for night owls, show-goers seeking supper, foodies searching to satisfy a culinary craving, and restaurant industry professionals celebrating the end of a shift. Both the atmosphere and food at these top eateries are as vibrant and pleasing late into the evening as they are at 8 p.m."
Based on feedback collected from OpenTable diners between August 2010 and July 2011, the following 50 restaurants, listed in alphabetical order, received the highest scores for late night dining from OpenTable diners.
