The 100 best places to eat in 2017

L'Industrie Pizza BKYelp/Katie L.L’Industrie Pizzeria, Brooklyn, NY.

There’s nothing quite like word of mouth for finding under the radar restaurants.
Mostly fast casual places that some might even consider a hole in the wall, Yelp’s list of the 100 best places to eat is word of mouth on a mass scale.

To create the list, Yelp took into consideration both the quality of reviews received and the number of reviews received. However, rating was weighed more heavily than volume.

Half this list is restaurants that only opened in the past year or two, so act quick before word travels.
