America's Best-Rated Restaurant Is a Tiny Shack

Yelp! has released their list of the 100 best places to eat in America, and it’s not like any such list you’ve seen. The ratings site relies on reviews from everyone, from self-styled critics to tourists to you and me. In this list, pricy Michelin-rated restaurants don’t have an advantage over the local crab shack. And guess who’s on top?

It’s a tiny seafood haunt wedged into a condominium complex in Kona, on Hawaii’s Big Island. It’s called Da Poke Shack, and in Yelpers’ eyes it’s pretty much perfect: an average of five stars on 612 customer reviews.

Aficionados swoon for its poke bowls—salads that combine Japanese-inflected spices and greens like seaweed or kimchi with generous chunks of still-floppingly fresh, raw Ahi tuna.

That’s not the only surprising result: New York City’s highest-rated eatery is a food truck. Read more about the list at Slate. -via Digg
