For the past three weeks or so, occasionally-controversial New York Times food critic Frank Bruni has been counting down the ten best U.S. restaurants outside of New York and the way he’s done it has been fascinating. When he announced the feature, Bruni named the ten best restaurants but declined to give their ranking. Ever since, he’s been spooling out the rankings, a few at a time.
We’ve been personally excited about Bruni’s list since it was announced and we noticed that O Ya was on the list. Now, things are getting even more exciting for Bostonians as Bruni has announced his tenth-fourth favorite restaurants with nary a mention of the Leather District haute sushi spot. This means that O Ya is definitively in the top three. Could it be number one? We’ll be waiting anxiously to find out.
