Hell's Kitchen Tops OpenTable's Ranking Of Romantic U.S. Restaurants, But Is It Worth It?
By Stacie Adams
While dining out is standard for Valentine's Day, selecting the right restaurant can be challenging when striving for the perfect combination of delicious food and a romantic atmosphere. Fortunately, OpenTable is here to guide diners all over the country, and one selection has proved rather surprising thanks to its association with a world-famous celebrity chef.
While known for being a reservation service, OpenTable also compiles information on restaurants, analyzing the top 100 romantic spots in the nation, which was further investigated by Food & Wine. First place is taken by Maui-based Mama’s Fish House, with Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen in Las Vegas coming in second.
Based on Ramsey’s hothead reputation along with the TV show of the same name, one might not immediately associate Hell’s Kitchen with a pleasant romantic atmosphere. However, the restaurant currently has a 4.5 rating on Tripadvisor, and reviewers offer consistent praise when it comes to the quality of the dishes and the wonderful atmosphere.
