Opinionated About Dining

Opinionated About Dining (OAD) was originally a blog filled with opinions, created by Steve Plotnicki. Steve still has plenty of opinions, but OAD is primarily about diners ranking restaurants. Almost 5,000 participants from around the world voice their own opinions about restaurants visited on their own terms, mostly for pleasure some for serious hobby but not for pay or exposure. The data for each list runs from Jan 1 through Dec 31 and each year the new OAD Top 100 lists are released.

From the OAD website,”The methodology assigns a weight to each restaurant based on factors such as price point and the type of diners it attracts, and assigns a weight to reviewers based on the quantity and quality of restaurants a reviewer has visited.” 


OAD Masters Dinner

The 2016 OAD European awards were held in Copenhagen, Denmark. Kicking off the OAD weekend was a Master Chef reception and dinner by three 3-star Michelin chefs at Geranium restaurant.
