World's Top Restaurants - Palace Arms at The Brown Palace Hotel, DenverSometimes travelers just strike lucky and find a pot of gold on their trip. Before it was world renowned, Palace Arms at the Brown Palace Hotel was just the establishment’s own eatery for guests. However, after turning many heads and sparking many a-taste bud, Palace Arms is now considered one of the world’s premier restaurants.

The hotel is famous enough for being the first atrium-style hotel built, but it’s the restaurant that has really brought in the crowds in recent years. Opened in 1892, it is one of Denver, Colorado’s oldest and most famous attractions.

The outside of the Brown Palace Hotel seems to be out of place. From a distance, it resembles the corner stone construction of New York mainstays like Delmonico’s, but from up close and personal, this gigantic triangular-shaped building presents itself as a feat of architecture, especially for the time it was built.

Top US Restaurant Review - Delmonico's, New York

New York City is perhaps the world's most famous city, and that's saying a lot when you consider Rome, London, Paris, and other major metropolitan areas across the globe. Whether you refer to NY as the Big Apple, the City of Dreams, or just plain home, one thing's for sure: this city is a hotbed of constant activity.

New York has long been known for its many great restaurants, and if you ask lovers of fine dining, Delmonico's is the absolute best in the business. Judging by its popularity today, it's not hard to believe that Delmonico's has been around since the early 1800s.

It is one of America's first continuously run restaurants, and is hands down the first-and still premier-fine dining establishment. In the early days of the restaurant, it was much more of an eatery, or cafeteria, allowing diners of all walks of life to come in and try food a la carte style.

Top US Restaurant Review - Durgin-Park

Most restaurants in the world are easily identified by their clientele, menu, or the aesthetic nature of the building. With Durgin-Park, Boston's most famous restaurant, it's hard to tell exactly what you're getting unless you actually go there. The restaurant is a true contradiction, seating some of the world's most successful businessmen, but serving “everyday” items at prices that rival fast food restaurants. It's clear to see why people come from far and wide to enjoy a dish at Durgin-Park, and it's impossible to miss the quaint elegance of this age-old establishment.

Durgin-Park Café is located in downtown Boston and offers casual dining to anyone who really wishes to enjoy good, old fashioned grub. They mainly deal in seafood and prime rib, but other dishes are available. The cooks dishing up the delights aren't the pretentious, take-it-my-way chefs that you'll find in other restaurants; instead, the short-order style cooking is more like an all-night diner. The service staff, better known as just plain “waitresses,” is famous at Durgin-Park. Lucky guests, or unlucky, as it were, may run into a moody waitress who's quick to tell you where to put your dinner plate. The food served consistently earns high marks.
