I remember when hotel restaurants were places to be avoided. As a category, they had no history of serving exceptional food. As TheDailyMeal points out, that began to change about 20 years ago. The first place I noticed the trend was in Las Vegas, where celebrity chefs were opening branches of their flagship restaurants, most of them in hotels. I had amazing food at Prime and Picasso in the Bellagio, Aureole at Mandalay Bay, Joel Robuchon at MGM. Now, you can find some of a city’s best restaurants in hotels. TheDailyMeal’s writers have made a list of their 101 favorite hotel restaurants. Check it out here.
