A pair of South Sound establishments made the list when it comes to dining reservation website OpenTable’s list of the most scenic restaurants in America.
Duke’s Chowder House and Lobster Shop South, both situated on Ruston Way with views of Commencement Bay, Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains, were among 10 Washington restaurants that made OpenTable’s list of 100.
Washington was second among states in number of restaurants featured, trailing only California’s 24. Florida followed with seven restaurants on the list.
The list reflects the combined opinions of more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by OpenTable diners for more than 20,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
“Whether they're perched atop a city skyscraper or nestled on a mountainside, this year's winning restaurants provide awe-inspiring views that showcase all the beauty of their surroundings for locals and travelers seeking a front-row seat to a city's natural or manmade splendors,” said Caroline Potter, OpenTable’s chief dining officer. “A dining experience at any of these honorees is the most delicious way to get a true sense of place when vacationing or exploring your own hometown.”
