There’s a “foodie” in all of us. We all love food, I know I love it a little too much. This article caught my eye because I will actually be spending New Year’s Eve in Blowing Rock, NC which is right outside of Boone & Beech Mountain, North Carolina. I’ll be ending the decade in a relaxing way versus partying in Uptown, don’t get me wrong…I’ve done that plenty…just time for a change. SO one of the things I’ve been going back and forth about in my mind is where to have my “last meal” so to speak. I review restaurants on Yelp and OpenTable often so this was a pretty credible list! OpenTable has just come out with their annual list of the 100 Best Restaurants in the United States, culled from 12,000,000+ reviews of more than 30,000 restaurants across the country, all submitted by verified diners.

The Restaurant at Gideon Ridge in Blowing Rock, NC made the list!

I’ve never heard of this place but after looking at their menu…it’s totally a LauRen restaurant and not so much a Producer Nicole menu.

Another North Carolina restaurant made the top-100 list and it’s Crawford & Son in my home town of Raleigh, NC! This restaurant is GOOD and the company is even better. If you’re in Raleigh I highly suggest this restaurant.

I won’t be able to give you guys a review on the Blowing Rock restaurant (I’ll stick to more of a pub vibe) but if you’d like to send us your review I’d be more than happy to share 🙂 Tweet us – @theMRLshow
