Palm Beach restaurants: Buccan named to OpenTable’s ‘best’ list for 2018

Posted On: 12-12-2018

The 100 best restaurants in America include a dining spot in Palm Beach.

That’s according to a 2018 “best” list released last week by San Francisco-based OpenTable, a leading world provider of online restaurant reservations.

On the list: Buccan, 350 S. County Road.

OpenTable’s “100 Best Restaurants in America” list is based on a proprietary methodology relying on restaurant reviews submitted by OpenTable users, who use opentable.com to, among other things to make reservations.

The 2018 list stems from more than 12 million verified OpenTable users’ reviews of 28,000-plus restaurants located in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., according to OpenTable.

“The list is generated solely from diner reviews collected between Nov. 1, 2017 and Oct. 31, 2018,” an OpenTable new release states. “All restaurants with a minimum `overall’ score and number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from each restaurant’s average rating in the `overall’ category.”

Restaurants in this year’s best list collectively represent virtually all types of cuisines and price points. New York has the most honorees with 24 restaurants. Among other states, California has 15, Illinois has nine and Texas has eight.

Florida has six, including Buccan. OpenTable lists it as the “Best Overall in Miami/Southeast Florida.”

Buccan has been a hot spot in Palm Beach since chef/co-owner Clay Conley and his partners, including Sam Slattery and Piper Quinn, opened it in 2011 and later launched other restaurants, such as Imoto in Palm Beach and Grato in West Palm Beach.

Buccan, known for inventive small plates prepared with quality ingredients, consistently has won a place on OpenTable’s “best” lists, including monthly tabulations of best “hot spots.”

OpenTable’s “Best Overall in Miami/Southeast Florida” describes Buccan as providing “an adventurous and memorable dining experience.”

Winning high praise from OpenTable user-diners “is the ultimate guest-endorsement,” Buccan’s Averill Conley has noted. “This type of recognition offers a unique authenticity.”

Among other accolades Buccan has won over the years, the restaurant’s partners in 2016 received the Business Leader of the Year award from the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce.
