Rapoport’s Restaurant Group’s Deck 84, Delray Beach’s go-to waterfront restaurant since November 2010, was recently named one of the 2015 Top 100 Best Al Fresco Dining Restaurants in America. The annual list is assembled from the combined opinions of more than 5 million restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 20,000 restaurants in all 50 states. The list features restaurants in some of the nation’s most popular vacation destinations. Florida came in second with 18 restaurants; Deck 84 being the only waterfront location in Palm Beach County to be awarded. This recognition joins the list of other honors Deck 84 has received from OpenTable Diners including great outdoor dining, great lunch, and best scenic view in Palm Beach County, among other monthly Diners’ Choice votes over the years. Deck 84 was also featured in the 2012 and 2013 Top 100 Outdoor Dining Spots lists. “It’s a great honor to be named one of the top outdoor dining destinations out of the thousands of restaurants nationwide,” says President of Rapoport’s Restaurant Group, Burt Rapoport. “We are truly thankful to our guests. Without their support and taking the time to provide their feedback and votes through Opentable, we wouldn’t have qualified for this national recognition.” According to Opentable, the Top 100 Best Al Fresco Dining Restaurants in America are generated from more than 5 million restaurant reviews collected from verified OpenTable diners between May 1, 2014, and April 30, 2015. All restaurants with a minimum number of qualifying reviews were included for consideration. Qualifying restaurants were then sorted according to a score calculated from each restaurant’s average rating in the “great for outdoor dining” category along with a minimum “overall” rating.
