One of the best restaurants in America is right here in Palm Beach


It’s that time of year when ‘best of’ lists for 2017 are complied for all types of things, from best bites to favorite foods. And OpenTable just revealed one of the big ones: The 100 Best Restaurants in American for 2017.

The list from the online restaurant reservation service reflects the opinions of more than 12 million reviews submitted by OpenTable diners for more than 26,0000 restaurants in America.

And lucky for us, one spot that landed on the list is located just over the bridge in Palm Beach: Buccan.

This well-loved Palm Beach eatery serves up favorites from Chef Clay Conley such as his supreme small plates (he’s masterful with raw fish and seafood dishes) and the 12-ounce, New York strip steak with smoked soy, and black garlic. It’s great for people-watching too!

Buccan: 350 S. County Road, Palm Beach; 561-833-3450
