Congrats are in order for restaurateur and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump as not one but two of her SoCal dining establishments made the cut for OpenTable's 2015 Top 100 Hot Spot Restaurants in America!
SUR and newcomer Pump had some pretty fierce competition, but after "analyzing more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the country," verified OpenTable diners determined that both West Hollywood hot spots were worthy of the title.
The list highlights "hip, new restaurants, celebrity chefs and avant-garde restaurateurs," and Lisa was beyond thrilled by the honor, posting a picture on her personal Instagram. How wonderful, darling!
Lisa recently opened up about just how much her restaurants' appearances on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules have positively impacted her personal success.
"I think it was the smart move to do because suddenly we're in 137 counties," she said. "So I have these three restaurants, now we just opened our third Pump in West Hollywood and I have SUR, which Vanderpump Rules is kind of largely about…And Housewives centered quite a lot around Villa Blanca. So, yes, I think it was beneficial. We get a lot of people from all over the country and all over the world—so absolutely it was a good move."
Although Villa Blanca didn't make the list this year, plenty of commenters were quick to sing the restaurant's praises on Lisa's Instagram. "Love Villa Blanca for lunch but the biggest problem is that I can't pass the bread and that amazing dip before my meal comes," wrote one fan. "Ate dinner at Villa Blanca and it was sooo good and then went to Pump for drinks and had a great time there too," another one wrote.
