The diners of Open Table, the national restaurant reservation service, have spoken: Two Palm Beach County eateries have earned spots on the site’s 2015 Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America list.
HOT SPOT 1

The always buzzy Palm Beach bistro is where Chef Clay Conley has earned a following for his sublime flavor combos. (One Open Table customer review, echoing the site’s popular opinion, called the place “exceptional.”)
HOT SPOT 2
A funky Delray Beach cantina is the second local eatery hailed as a top hot spot: El Camino Mexican Soul Food & Tequila Bar is praised by the site’s verified diners for its street food options and vibrant bar scene.
Open Table narrowed the 100 Top Hot Spot list from a vast field, according to the website:
“We determined the list of honorees after analyzing more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the country — all submitted by verified diners.”
