Vetri, Gilmore's ranked tops in service

They're among OpenTable's list of 50 tops.

Vetri, Gilmore's ranked tops in service


OpenTable, the restaurant reservation site, is out with its 2010 Diners' Choice Awards for best service, based on nearly four million reviews submitted by OpenTable diners from 10,000-plus restaurants  

On the list  -- among such standouts as Daniel, Le Bernardin, La Grenouille, TRU, and Per Se -- are Gilmore's in West Chester, owned and operated by Le Bec-Fin alumnus Peter Gilmore and his wife, Susan, and Vetri  in Center City, owned and operated by Marc Vetri and Jeff Benjamin.

Interesting side note: Neither restaurant uses a PR firm, and the judging was based on public sentiment -- not editors or food professionals.
