Top 10 OpenTable restaurants

OpenTable's top 10 list from today, which I assume is based on number of reservations processed through their system?

1 Catch
2 Beauty & Essex
4 Beaumarchais
5 Co-Op
6 Abe & Arthurs
7 Marble Lane
8 Toku Modern Asian
9 STK Meatpacking
10 STK Midtown

Funny how most of these are Meatpacking weekend-y spots. What do you guys think of this list?

      Sigh. Agreed. WTF is Toku Modern Asian?

      1. re: LeahBaila

        Some spot in Manhasset. Never heard of it. Co-Op seems to the the only legit spot on this list, although I've never heard of Marble Lane... The rest is pretty much schwag.

          Hahhahhah @ "schwag." Hey, today is "4/20," after all.......
          I've heard decent things about Catch...

            4/20 indeed. Beauty & Essex used to be the chronic right when it opened, but went down. I like Santos' kitchen at Stanton Social better, esp for brunch. Had drinks at Catch, never dinner... great space but cheesy crowd.

      1. How did you arrive at this list? It appears to be the "Hot Spot" list, not the overall highest rated.

        "Best Overall" list:

        And they do say at the top this is "New York / Tristate Area."
