Open Table has announced its 2012 Diner's Choice Award winners for the Top 100 Restaurants with the Most Notable Wine Lists, and nine Maryland restaurants are on it. That's a higher representation than any state but California.
The Maryland restaurants on the Diner's Choice list include Cinghiale, Vino Rosina and The Wine Market in Baltimore; Iron Bridge Wine Co. and AIDA Bistro & Wine Bar in Columbia; Bistro Blanc in Glenelg; Pairings Bistro in Bel Air; and Grapeseed in Bethesda.
The awards, according to Open Table, are generated from more than 5 million reviews collected from verified Open Table diners, and all restaurants with a minimum number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Restaurants were then scored and sorted according to the percentage of qualifying reviews for which "Notable Wine List" was selected as a special feature.
Based in San Francisco, Open Table provides online restaurant reservations for diners and reservation and guest management solutions for restaurants.
