AAA just recently releases their list of five and four restaurants for several cities throughout the United States. These restaurants represent the best of the best in cuisine from gourmet to down home. Odds are you'll pay out the teeth to eat their food, but at least you know it's the best. As you can probably guess, the five star restaurants are the very best with four star not too far behind.
While the restaurants are broken down by region, there are 179 named across the U.S. These restaurants and lodging make up just .3 percent of the more than 59,000 AAA approved and diamond rated establishments in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
In order to even quality, they have to be inspected by one of the AAA full-professional inspectors. AAA inspects and provides rating for more properties than any other business or website out there. I find out more information about AAA everyday and am amazed. AAA is an organization that goes far beyond what I think of their standard business concept. Apparently, AAA has been rating restaurants and hotels since 1937. I guess it all fits with their desire to give people the best information on all things travel.
